In today’s episode, we touch base with all that’s been happening since our last episode about two weeks ago. It’s been such a pleasure hanging out in Kaunas quite recently, there has been so much going on from throwing spears at Kaunas Castle to “ Kaunas Hansa days ” to a special tree that Rūta Meilutytė loves. We cover all this and more in this episode.
We also got the chance to meet and hangout with two very special friends of the Say Labas show who took the time to visit Kaunas recently. We try our hand at speaking and understanding Latvian and fail epically.
What does spaghetti, bridges and Lithuanians have in common? Nothing right? Wrong! We find out the connection in our news of the week segment, Romualdas a beekeeper and good friend of Tim joins us in 60 seconds with a Lithuanian and we wrap it all up with a fascinating museum found right here in Kaunas.
