This chapter tells the story
of the visit to various places
outside the inner cities
of both Kaunas and Vilnius.
The name of the chapter - Lietuva
is the word "Lithuania" in Lithuanian.

In and around the city of Kaunas
the group visited Slovodka
the Vilhaljampole suburb as it is known
as well as the famous ninth fort.

In and around the city of Vilnius
the group visited Ponar.
The notorious wood of horror.
The local airport is also nearby.

In between Kaunas and Vilnius

as well as the town of Keidan.

As most of the week was spent
in the cities of Kaunas and Vilnius
it was nice to see a little bit
of various other parts of Lithuania. Lietuva- Machtas - Lithuania - Macht - kaunas - Vilnius - Summer ליטא-ליטא  - טיול שורשים לליטא  - קובנה - וילנה  - קיץ  2009
