Lithuanian Food of The Day 3

So the lunacy continues.. Two of us have been "asked" to fly to England for the weekend to work on issues in the factory. We'll miss a weekend in Vilnius with no work to do and the first good weather of the entire trip. All for what amounts to about $3500 and one good working day in England. Fuck. I got the call in my hotel room at about 10:30pm and the other guy that has to go was out at a bar. I tried phoning him about 20 times with no luck so I got the room number for the guy who knows the most about this place, phoned him and got directions back to the bar. Walked there but they were nowhere in sight. Walked back, thought to call the office number (in England) of another guy who was there, hoping that it would be redirected to his mobile (and hoping that HIS mobile was working). Success. Then called the travel agency and spent 45 minutes sorting everything out. It's a shame that only business class seats are available.

Today's food: potato pancakes with meat. Yummy potato pancakes with what amounted to a hamburger patty in the middle. Tasty but I couldn't help thinking that it would have tested better with a beer (I'm on antibiotics).

I can't deny that Vilnius is full of beautiful women. Thousands more apparently appear when the weather turns nice but I won't be here for that, will I? At dinner tonight we were served by a woman who was a *dead ringer* for Juliette Binoche in "The Unbearable Lightness of Being." One of the guys insisted on asking her, repeatedly, "Want to come out drinking with us after dinner?" She didn't seem to be too bothered by that, but please.

Guess we'll have a fourth BFoTD after all.
