A grey, wet and chilly day for a long exploration........but it was worthwhile.
I loved the variety of wooden houses I saw in this residential district of Kaunas.....some broken-backed and clearly 'dying', others smart and well-kept-up. Some tiny one-level bungalows, some huge two (even three) storied.
I noticed that most had good modern double-glazed windows, even if the roofline was wobbly and the woodwork not well-kept. I suspect keeping draughts out is very important in a Lithuanian winter.
