Arena Vision

When I left Lithuania at the end of August 2011, the new Kaunas arena was still under construction — even though the arena was supposed to host the September European Basketball Championship.  They managed to finish the arena just in time.  It’s a big glass box on the river, but I hear that inside it is comfortable and on the leading edge of arena technology.  While the building itself isn’t particularly attractive, the glass provided amazing reflections of the clouds and sky on Sunday afternoon.
