Tomorrow, he will put his work documents in order, and Tuesday will be his first work day in Anupriškės. He'll start working in the restaurant, and we'll see what he'll do best at.” Basir will be working at Guoga's TonyResort.

Guoga also wrote that they had started working on the documents necessary to help Basir's family in Afghanistan make it to Lithuania.
