Subject: 'Vegan in Vilnius'

I spent about 5 days in Vilnius back in November 2005. It was really cold and rainy! I remember eating at Balti Drambliai Vegetarine Kavine. I don\'t remember menu items being labeled as vegan. I just guessed and hoped. I didn\'t get sick after, so I must\'ve guessed right. I remember the food being pretty good. I liked the atmosphere as well. I spent a long time there with my journal. The morning before I left, I went to a place where I had veggie fajitas that were really nice. Other than that, I shopped at a supermarket and cooked my meals in the kitchen at my hostel. Don\'t expect the supermarkets to be well stocked with health food stuff, but I managed fine.
I didn\'t see much of the city cause the weather was so bad, but what I saw was really nice, and the architecture is really interesting. You should check out Užupis. It\'s a self-proclaimed \"republic\" on the other side of the river. A sort of artist\'s colony with galleries and cafes, it has its own President, constitution, and the Angel of Užupis.
