So, today is the first part of the soccer (football) extravaganza. I will be traveling with Victor, his brother Eric and his dad to Ukraine to cheer on Sweden in their first match of the Euro Championship 2012. This tournament is what helps Europeans not go crazy from soccer cabin fever while they wait for the world cup every four years.
Today was the last day of our trip. We ate the delicious, but strange, mixture of food that was provided for breakfast. I had never heard of having veal for breakfast, but it was there along with cold fish and all sorts of vegetables, plus all of the things Americans would recognize with breakfast, and more that we would not.
... policemen standing outside of the car, one with a radar gun. After we came out of the toilets we noticed them pull over a car. One policeman walked across to the other side of the road to the driver and talked to him for awhile. After some time, both the policeman and speeding driver crossed back over the road and got into the police car. A long conversation occurred, after which the speeding driver then got out of the police car and walked across the road and ...
... and memorials to the fallen. Like the killing fields of Cambodia this example of mans inhumanity to man leaves a heavy heart. The site now has a museum and is covered in trees of several local varieties – the air is clean, clear and fresh but the imagination can barely comprehend the horror, the fear and the humiliation.

Now, not many travelers say to themselves that they want to go to Minsk. However, should you find yourself in this capital of Europe this would not be a bad choice. It is not far from the city center of Minsk, (by bus,) and is not far from the airport.
The hotel is clean, if a little boring. Beware of conferences you are not attending, because the staff is slow at cleaning up after them. Should you want something to eat a a later hour, it is not likely to be received, but there is a chance. The staff speaks enough English to get by, but if there is a speaker of Russian in your group it may help better.
Breakfast is not included, but can be purchased, and it very large and good. Free amenities are provided in the bathroom and bedroom. The rooms are clean and tidy. They remind you of retro hostel rooms, but they will suffice you for your short stay.
