Are you familiar with the Lithuanian version of Wikipedia?  It's called Vikipedija.  You should take a look.  Even if you're a novice learner of Lithuanian you'll find it interesting.  Take a look at the photos and descriptions.  Vikipedija's address is listed below.  Enjoy!

In today's lesson we learn some new greetings.
