CARLOS EJARQUE MARTINEZ – THE OTHER SIDE OF VILNIUS

First of all, just make clear I think Vilnius is a nice town. It has everything I like or need. But I think it is developing as a city, in the middle of the road. Because anyone can see how nice some zones or areas are, how much money has been invested on them and how other areas less touristic have been discarded. Or how even in the same good zones there are some details still to work out.
I am not an expert, but I guess they are in the path to become a better city, a more global one and more reclaim for the people abroad. I know is a decades process, that’s is why there are so many structural problems but since I am new in town it’s now when I am able to judge it, I come from a bigger town(Spain) and despite it is far from being perfect you can see the differences between both.
Finally I have chosen to focus only in the bad zones because everyone has heard about the nice ones, living here its unavoidable to hear about its churches, parks, views…. So I wanted to go the other way, because at the end of the day these zones are as much as viewed than the other ones. So, I wanted to have the chance to inspect the hidden places, the things no one wants to see, to check the other side, also living in the main center of the city sometimes you just see the important, the beauty of it and forget about the rest, that is what I wanted to answer. And from that, be totally objective and global about my view in the city.
In my map there are only a few examples about what I do not like, scares me or just find ugly about Vilnius, like the alleys, the public toilets, some areas crossing the river. Probably it is just me and my paranoia but there are quite some places which I avoid or just not going in the night, I don’t trust certain zones, I don’t feel safe in those.
So, to sum up. From my foreigner point of view, I like the city, in its total self I really like it. I can do all I like and need, but it is just focused in some points. It should be better at every level to become a powerful town.

    The Other Side of the Hedge After reading the first few paragraphs, The Other Side of the Hedge, by E. M. Forster, seems to be nothing more than a story about a man walking down a long road. The narrator's decision to go through the hedge transforms the story into an allegory that is full of symbols representing Forster's view of the journey of life. The author develops the allegory through the use of several different symbols including the long road, the hedge and the water. The…

    Jake Glazier Dim. Lit. The Other Side of the Hedge E.M. Forster The Other Side of the Hedge is a powerfully symbolic essay, sometimes allegorical while other times more direct. Forster invokes images of nature and its stages throughout the tale. Images such as the "brown crackling hedges" and "hills—clean, bare buttresses, with beech trees in their folds." Forster pairs his imagery of nature against "objects" like the narrator's pedometer that seem useless and actually stop functioning after…
