From our camping spot at the river Memel we rode into the city center of Kaunas. After a short look to the remains of a castle and two churches we left Kaunas straight in southern direction. Over Marijampole and Kalvarija we came near the Lithuanian-Polish border. At a small lake near Rūdninkai we stayed for the night. In this region of Lithuania the plains generally encountered in the Baltics end and hills started to dominate the landscape. Fortunately the sun didn’t shine the whole day, so it wasn’t as hot as the day before and even the wind came down.
