Old-Timey Village Life

I haven’t been to Rumšiškės, the outdoor ethnographic museum, since the early 1990s.  We stopped for a visit on Sunday afternoon and wandered through the houses and farm buildings — all built between the mid-18th to early 19th centuries and moved to the museum for exhibition.  I had hoped there would be people in costume recreating village life, but apparently that doesn’t happen every weekend.  But we still enjoyed walking about in the sunshine and seeing the different styles of buildings.  One of the best things about the experience was listening to the frogs in the pods.
