Waiting for You

My last days in Vilnius have been filled with final packing and saying goodbye to friends and colleagues — actually this pretty much describes my whole week.  As I say my farewells, all my Lithuanian friends tell me “we are waiting for your return.”  I’m already planning a trip to Lithuania next May for the 40th anniversary commemorations of Kalanta’s self-immolation and the events that followed his funeral.  It is good to know that I have friends who will be waiting for me when I come back.

These tables outside a cafe in Vilnius are waiting for someone to sit down and enjoy the sunshine and a cup of coffee
