Yesterday a random stranger dressed in a military outfit walked into our classroom. He had an unfashionable haircut and was wearing two suspiciously full bags. The fact that I just had read an article about the Beslan school hostage didn’t make me feel more comfortable. Obviously not being one of the journalism students, he just sat down, starting a relaxed conversation with our teacher who had no idea what to do with this guy. Furthermore he was fascinated there was a Frenchman in our class. Suddenly he started to play a few notes on the piano after which he left again, wishing us all a happy birthday and a merry Christmas. Lithuania, you keep on surprising me!
