My new amber and lava bracelet and it's linen bag. Linen and amber are the primary souvenir options. the Baltic is the source for 90% of the world amber, which is fossilized tree resin (mostly from pine trees).  I learned that clear amber is from resin that has formed outside of bark in response to a break in the bark. clouded amber is less common, it's called butterscotch amber, and forms inside the tree.
Today was a bit of a break from the intensity of the jewish history. Tomorrow I pack my bags and head to the Roots tour. I am sharing a car with two others so will go to their shtetls too. One is near Keidan but the other is in Poland and we will go to on the second Roots day.
