Well its Tuesday!!! new week, new episode and the start of a very few busy weeks for us at Say Labas.

Have a listen to episode 15 and episode 17 for more info.

Ok, In this weeks show however we felt that we should cover feelings and how to tell your friendly Lithuanian friends how you are feeling… we don’t want you going hungry in Lithuania although the chances of that are next to impossible lets be honest.


Also in this episode is the start of an exciting and interesting new section called “Towns of Lithuania” there are approximately 103 towns in Lithuania the all knowing wikipeda and we think these little towns deserve some much needed love and a little time in the spotlight. So every week we will be choosing a town and telling you all something interesting about it. This weeks town of the week is Tverai and boy where we shocked when we started reading about this place it has a long and very fascinating history. listen to hear more.
