Interesting Facts!

While waiting for the overnight bus to Vilnius, we made friends with a Polish guy, Pawel. He worked at the Oki Doki hostel and is studying Pharmacy. We discussed our travels and he was completely intrigued by us. He asked many questions in regards to the preparations for the Trans-Siberia trip. We said our good-byes to Pawel and Warsaw and made our way to the bus station. After a eight hour horrible bus ride, we arrived in Vilnius, Lithuania at 9am. The hostel was uninviting and did not explain anything to us. Therefore, we gave ourselves a tour and decided to take a nap for a couple of hours. We somewhat explored the city and found some interesting facts for all to know.

1. You are not allowed to put USED toilet paper in the toilet. You must use the the small bin located beside toilet due to awful plumbing (YUCK).

2. Information counters at the bus and train stations do not provide any help. You are better off trying to figure it out on your own.

3. Try not to get a bed next to a large, old, snoring, Mexican man. Kacee was up for hours... Man, could he saw some logs.
