1. You just love Lithuanian food.
Think smoked bacon (lasinukai), pickled gherkins (agurkeliai), herring with beetroots (silke pataluose), white potato salad (balta misraine), dark garlic bread (duona su cesnaku), and potato dumplings with meat (cepelinai). Your every trip back to Lithuania involves eating all of these, if possible all at once.
2. Basketball is your second (if not first) religion.
Basketball is the only sport that all 3 million Lithuanians are passionate about. Wherever in the world you would be, you will not have to look far for a bar filled with Lithuanians in yellow, green and red t-shirts bearing Lithuanian flags in one hand and a beer in the other — and they’ll welcome you like a best friend to watch the match together.
