This will be a short post because we are enjoying the benefit of extremely affordable railway travel during the first part of this week.

Our Resident Director counterpart, Amanda, arrived safely from Indiana Thursday night, which means we are duty-free until we begin our staff training on Wednesday.

It will be quite a while (perhaps winter break?) until we both are able to be this far away from the university at the same time, so even though we haven't been here that long, we figure we should take advantage of the opportunity while we can.

Our destination: Vilnius, Lithuania's capital city. We plan to do some sight-seeing, visit a Holocaust museum, research the availability of Soviet-era music equipment, and get an early start on celebrating our seventh wedding anniversary.

We'll post some pictures from our adventure next week!
