Biked about 2 miles today for a total of 432 miles.

Sunny and warm to Hot. Cooler in the shade. Absolutely no rain.

Got up at 6:30 am to catch the 7:30 am bus to Vilnius. Road with Ecoline bus service - free coffee, tea, WiFi.

Straight shot from Riga to Vilnius on freeway. Arrived at 11:15 am.

Left our gear at la ocker, as our AirBNB room would not be ready until 3:00 pm.

We went on a walking tour in the old town and in the fictious republic of Uzupis, created by drunken artists and now celebrated by locals and tourists. Good overview of Vilnius centrally.

Had a difficult time finding our new home, but it was worth it. It is a studio apartment near the only left gate to the old city called the Gate of Dawn.

Had a good dinner in old town on this warm, sunny evening.

Napolean falsely was claimed that he loved this Cathederal.

That'll be St Casimir's church, not St Catherine's church.

I changed it to St Casimir's church. Thank you for noting this. If any other errors are found let me know. Terry
