Light and Shadow


This town has two faces, depending on the light. Radiant or black — and also, in the New Town, silver grey or tweed.

How dark are the closes in Winter, when the nights are as long as in Copenhagen, Klaipeda or Moscow?

But now it is summer. We walk through the night in a long, long dusk -- no, dawn. In the north, the new daylight lingers, ready to reappear.

The town is favoured by sitting on hills. The sun paints the buildings golden until it is gone.
