With less than a week in the country and unable to travel to the areas where my ancestors lived, this was a great alternative. My guide spoke excellent English, he made sure I got to see the parts of the Rumsiskes open air museum that were pertinent to my family, even inquiring at the office if there were any publications about these regions. He picked me up at the back entrance so I wouldn't have to retrace my steps. We then headed to Kaunas where I saw the castle ruins, town hall plaza, a burgher's house, and several churches. We had lunch at an outdoor cafe-very reasonable. As it was a Monday and the monastery wasn't open and really wasn't on my must see list, we skipped it, instead stopping at Akopolis Mall at a basketball store where I made a purchase.
