Welcome to Lithuania!

What is the best way to describe Lithuania?

I could talk about its politics, economy, education, traditions, art, sports, or any other topic for this matter, but what you are probably really looking for is not a long detailed report on the country's background, but rather a short authentic record of true Lithuania. Therefore, i choose to present Lithuania through pop music!

The bellow video was a candidate for the Eurovision contest in 2006 and is performed by the Lithuanian band InCulto. It did not win the national Eurovision contest as the LT United song We Are the Winners was more popular that year. Anyway, the band's leader Jurgis Didziulis is a Lithuanian who has grown up in Columbia. He is fluent in Spanish, Lithuanian and English, thus the band can be easily called trilingual. The video has received many controversial reactions from local music producers, both good and bad, but the bottom line is that it does have some very true insights about Lithuania and Lithuanians. Enjoy! ;)

Lithuanian Winter



Snowy Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania



Winter in Lithuania unlike in Spain is mostly associated with lots of snow and cold weather. Sometimes the temperature can drop down to as much as 25 or even 30 degrees below zero! Of course, there are just a few days like that, but when it happens all schools close down and people are recommended to stay indoors to avoid the cold that sometimes may have severe consequences on one's health.

The most enjoyable time in winter is when it snows. The temperature normally is around - 1 to - 5 degrees Celcius, which is cold enough for the snow not to melt away but still not low enough to cause harm to people's health. This is when children go sleigh-riding, build snowmen and play in the snow, or go for a walk in a snowy town, park or forest with their parents. And after that it is always very nice to come back home and have a cup of hot tea with lots of sugar and ginger biscuits... Winter is definitely the most magical time of the year in Lithuania.

Storytellers

Last Tuesday (22nd January 2008), we were visited by two storytellers, an English man (Tim Bowley) and a Galician woman (Charo Pita), who told us funny and sad stories. They represented feelings very well, and besides, she showed us how beautiful her voice was, when singing a sad song. We had a great time and we hope that they will come back again.
