A roadside sign announcing honey always pulls me off course, as did the Polish apiary just 5 kilometers from the Lithuanian border. We had no translator, but I understood that the elderly lady helping me with my honey purchase had been a bee keeper for many years. She proudly displayed an award for her work and after experiencing this unique honey, I knew this ambrosia deserved many accolades. Eastern Europe has a bee history deep in folklore and myths, which I intend on unraveling while in Lithuania... another country crazy about their bees.
