I’m sorry to report that I had an uneventful midsummer this year. I flew from Stockholm to Kaunas in the evening on Saturday, June 18, and was too tired to then take the train to Vilnius for the Let There Be Night festival. It was raining on June 21, the actual summer solstice, so I stayed home rather than venturing out to see what might be happening n Kaunas. I did go out to Verkių park with a friend in Vilnius on Thursday night for the Joninės festivities. But we got a late start because I had a dinner meeting and had her 11-year-old daughter in tow so we didn’t stay out until the wee hours. It certainly was a less eventful evening that my 2009 adventures at Verkių park. On Friday afternoon, I saw a crew setting up a stage in front of the Town Hall and planned to go see what was happening that evening. But once again, the rains came and I stayed home. In the end, midsummer passed without much fanfare and so ends this blog post.
