So I think the last couple days were a combination of being energized by being in a new place and consciousness largely fueled by coffee. After having a day or two in one place and far calmer than the previous, my body finally succumbed to the jet lag of being 7 hours off my normal timezone.
So last night, I went to bed at 11:00pm, then was wide awake from 1:00am on - I didn't get back to sleep until about 7:00am (by the way, the docuseries "Pandemic" on Netflix is great).
After sleeping until about 10:30, I dragged myself out of bed, made some coffee, eggs, and bacon (btw, brown eggs taste the same as white eggs, despite being less than half the price), then took a short walk around the neighborhood.
As I've mentioned before, I'm staying in the "Old Town" - the original city center from when Vilnius was founded. I spent the little bit of time I was here on Wednesday and Thursday staying pretty close to my AirBnB. Today, I decided to explore other corners of the Old Town - not quite hitting all of it just yet, but going down some other streets, going outside the original, medieval walls (yes, they're still up, in places), and looking at other parts of everything that gives this town its character.
The weather today was misty/rainy, so it made walking around a little less enjoyable. I walked for about an hour or so, then came back to do some work.
Here are some photos of the walk today - a handful of old churches/cathedrals, and the "Bastion" - the original fortification from the founding of the city.
