Dear Belarussian Militsia,
I am writing to complain about the treatment my friend and I underwent at the border of your country.
First of all, the lady militsia that boarded our bus (which passed by the queue of waiting cars and trucks, I might add!) actually smiled at us! Secondly, the babushka at the mandatory health insurance counter immediately understood our steinkohlen-Russki, and had the nerve not only to accept Euros, ...

- Centre Franco-Bielorussie:
I simply and truly love it. The lectures are incredible as well as the proferrors themselves. The university-student relashionship is so different from these in a belorusian universities!

I remember the atrium has glass elevators and they’ll have to come up them from the garage. Walk in to hotel and only allowed in ...
... perplexing, and I really don’t know what to make of my visit. I will start at the beginning. Belarus and Russia are two countries where visas are a serious matter (as we learned the hard way in Bosnia). The past semester students from my program took a train back to St. Petersburg from Kiev and didn’t realize the train went through Belarus.
