The next morning all of us hitchhiked to Šiauliai, from where part of the people went to the seaside. I stayed and waited for Olesia. Finally, we met and started to hitchhike in Rīga direction at about 15 o'clock.
The first our driver was unexpectedly from Hongkong. Than we were picked up by Lithuanian woman, she met us near Joniškis, where we really stuck. No one was stopping for 2 hours. One local woman, who was riding her bicycle, paid attention to our Ukrainian flag. She explained, that we don't have too much chances to catch a car from this nowhere place. So, she invited us to spend a night at her house in case we won't succeed. But fortunately, immediately a car stopped and we met Vincent. Yes, he is Chinese, Xiu Ki, but Vincent is his European name. Vincent was heading to Riga, but he wanted also to visit Pilsrundale, so we decided to join him. Actually, we had no choice. Vincent was travelling by a rent car, he came from Germany, where he lives now. Pilsrundale is a big palace surrounded by the huge garden and park. We really made friends with Vincent and after getting to Riga we went for a short ride with him to the old town. We had dinner at pizza restaurant and celebrated his birthday. The next day was all about walking in the city centre. The old town was good, but these fucking russian tourists and russian speaking locals makes bad impression, comparing to Lithuania. At first we were thinking to go back home by hitchhiking, but after Riga exhaustion we went to the bus station. Surprisingly, there we met Maria and Alexandre, who were also waiting for their bus. I took my bus to Plungė and hitchhiked from there to Plateliai.
