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.
