Labas! We’re back with another new podcast episode, the last episode was dedicated to Lithuania’s favourite pastime, basketball. This time however its all about making friends, Everyone needs a Lithuanian friend, why? Because Lithuanians are awesome of course. We learn some useful Lithuanian sentences that we hope will help you along the way in making a few good friends in Lithuania.
We spend some time talking about what we’ve been up to since the last episode, a trip to Silute, some traditional food, a crazy coach ride and more. As always we have our town of the week brought to us by a facebook friend of the show Rasa a place called Juodopė, sadly no crocodiles this week (check out last weeks episode) in our news section but Solveiga tells us about one of Lithuania’s future stars, an actress named Aistė Diržiūtė.
Our fun Lithuania fact is a surprising one, which may or may not be well known, it certainly surprised Tim when he found out – Hint the Lithuanian constitution.
