This was once a cemetary but the Soviets came in and said it should be a park. So they dug up all the old graves and moved them elsewhere. So now we have a park here.

This girl was very excited at posing for her mother's camera. I just had to snap a shot.

For some reason, our local tour guide thought we'd be hungry for "American" food and found a restaurant that served pizza. The pizza was good and food is plentiful in Belarus. But we wished to try Belarus foods, not American food!

This is a memorial for the what was believed to be a Nazi atroscity, the massacre of several villages. It is now believed the massacre was committed by the Soviets.

Many Polish Elite were also massacred here during WWII. Or as the Soviets called it, The Great Patriotic War.

Hi Tori, I enjoyed visiting Belarus and wish I had spent more time there. Perhaps I'll go back again. --Yubert
