Internet never seizes to amaze me.
A couple of weeks ago I came across a 9gag post which showed Europe through the eyes of Lithuanians… The nicknames given can vary from author to author, but one that is transversal to all is Portugal.
Well, the 9gag community, in the comment section then provided with an explanation:
Totally unexpected, I would say… Have to confirm this with some Lithuanian folks!
On the 11th of March, 1990, Lithuania became the first country to proclaim itself independent from de Soviet Union, granting the country its second (and hopefully last) independence.
Happy 27th birthday! 🙂
