Thanks for the pics so far. :flowers:

And for the pleasure of several (eh, Polyesco) here is one more pic and an article from TV2: Kronprinsen på cykeltur i Litauen | Nyheder | DR

Lithuania is very interested in Danish investments, which is of course why the red carpet was rolled out for Frederik, including being recieved by the President herself.
In fact we are now almost back to normal, in regards to the Baltic. It is easy to forget that the period from WWII until the fall of the Soviet Union with very little interaction across the Baltic Sea, was so very much abnormal.
Since I don't know when, there has always been a very busy trade between the countries around the Baltic Sea (also to pass the time between the periods when we raided each other).
Which is why the Baltic countries culturally and visually (i.e. architecture) resemble Scandinavia, Poland and Northern Germany so much. And why you can't hardly throw a stone in Lithuania without hitting a Scandinavian businessman in the head, or close your eyes for for more than a few seconds here in DK without tripping over an Estonian or a Pole. - So we are getting back to normal. :tongue:

As far as I could tell, it was Lithuanian security who surrounded Frederik not PET.

Frederik visited a bike shop in a shopping center in Vilnius

Frederik was fresh on trying a round on a tandem bike - could have been fun if Mary had been with him on the trip and had been sitting on the back of the tandem bike :smile:
