Tom Sawyer’s nite in Lithuania

Since young we have been reading about Tom Sawyer but we never dream that one day, we can live like he once did (though he’s a fictionous character … haa). We slept on hay, yes! dried hay that is for the cow and horse in winter and had our first thrilling experience in eating butter and white cheese made from their cow’s milk! Homemade cheese with butter … yummy!

They can have approximately 25L of fresh milk daily from 1 cow

Sleeping on hay! Reminds of Tom Sawyer’s adventures??

The hay was about 3m high and we slept warmly (yes! it was unbelievable warm) throughout the night
