Vilinus Lithuania

Jazz Lithuania style


I have only visited Lithuania once, I had a great time getting to know the people there. They have a wonderful Jazz fesitval called the ViniusJazz festival. The City of Vinius is a very quiet place with an old age eastern european charm. I do remember that the town had an Black Madonna in a church. I also remember that the market place had many different types of Amber that they were selling. You know whats good about traveling? It's learning from each other.

They had so many different type's of Amber, they had Black ,White and Yellow Amber's. Listen I mean they had Amber, and lots of it. So I ask someone why, and they told me that it comes from the Baltic sea. So yes I was in the area where Amber comes from. I didn't know this until then ( you live and you learn). So me being me, I brought back so many pieces that I end-up giving most of it away.

Anyway we had a great time there, we went inside the city and discovered many interesting things about the City. I only had two days to discover this beatutiful place, thats one of the set-back's also when you travel like I do. Sometimes it's hard to experience all that a City has to offer. But on the other hand, I was there! Well anyway, the festival was great and the music was one-of-a-kind. It's a remote part of the world, but thats the beauty of it all.
