20190705_104324 Two storks in a stork nest
What would Lithuanian countryside be without storks nesting high up on a utility pole! I saw them on the way from Vepriai after dropping off my daughter at a camp.
The road to and from the camp passed through big stretches of countryside, and I was happy to see that the fields were as full of storks as they were in my childhood. We also saw an occasional cat sauntering through the fields, perhaps doing rodent control.
Vepriai is a village in Lithuania where E went to the 10-day summer camp ("Vepriu stovykla") in July of 2019. Despite the language barrier (E did not learn much Lithuanian in time for the camp) she enjoyed it. Most of the kids in the camp, majority of which were Lithuanian, spoke good English, so language did not present a barrier.
