Trying the different local brews. Cool and refreshing on a hot afternoon.
We are enjoying the food and drink here in Minsk. We find that we like both. The local cuisine uses lots of beets, carrots, and cabbage. Chicken is the main affordable meat. They make a type of crepe called blinnly and stuff it with different things like cream cheese. And most things have a dollop of delicious sour cream. They also use lots of mayonnaise.

Restaurants have menus with pictures which help, but Kevin still got chicken livers by accident at the Lebanese restaurant - yuck! Fortunately, I ordered a yummy chicken curry that we shared. We found a place that has delicious fish and chips (and beer). Tonight we are having a barbeque with the other teachers - bring your own meat (probably chicken spiced with the mix our spice man made for us at the market) and a side dish. Zdrovo'ya!
