    Easter eggs decoration

    Easter egg preparation in Rietavas

    That requires lots of patience and help from your family members or friends. Lithuanians use plants' leaves, wax, onion peels and many other kinds of stuff to decorate Easter eggs. In Rietavas surroundings the Easter egg decoration is quite different than in other Lithuania places or big towns. For more details look at my Rietavas travelogue about Easter eggs preparation.

    Ice cream lady or Liberty statue?

    Liberty statue in Rietavas (Ice cream lady)

    Lithuanians used to start there town by making a square in the middle which was meant to be the main place of the town. They used to build some monuments in there, usually representing their struggle for freedom.
    Rietavas also has its own Liberty Statue - a girl with torch of liberty. But in my memory it has a name of "ice cream lady" because that's how my English teacher who was American and came to Rietavas as Peace corps volunteer called it. And if you wanna solve the dillema - is that a torch or an ice cream in her hand, you better come and see with your own eyes..:)
