Belarus–Images

Flickr.com’s Belarus slide show certainly confirms the nation’s pedigree as a former Soviet domain: there are many images of hockey, ballet, tractors farming a proud former Soviet countryside and, in Misnk, which the Russians rebuilt entirely after World War II, very big buildings. Boston.com’s “Big Picture” does a better job of peering around the corner and capturing daily life in Belarus…a life that still apparently includes lot of soldiers, police and potatoes. As always, look through these images before showing them to the kids.
