Q: what happened to the themes and the challenges?

A: Do you know?

Between Klaipeda and Vilnius there lays the 'Mecca of Lithuania'; the hill of crosses. Attempts to detroy the pilgrimage spot proved the hill of crosses indestructable. Time after time new crosses were erected and now literally hundreds of thousands of crosses are there to be seen. Some are made out of wood, others out of metal. Some expensive others cheap but together they form an impressive unity. The day we visit the Hill of crosses the wheather is gloomy which suits the spot perfectly.
