Hello people , the year is going to the end , so I make some resumes:
1 this year Belarus started the transplantation of heart and kidney- it is a great achievement in medical and surgery areas
2.  the world sport committee decided to hold a world hockey championship in 2014 in Minsk, so this year in Minsk is already built the second in the world hockey ring( arena)
3. this year in Football Manege in Minsk there was a show " Miss Intercontinental-2009", where Belorussian girl took the place of ViseMiss Intercontinental and place of Miss Intercontinental Europe, Miss Congeniality!
so this is Belarus and BELORUSIAN GIRLS! :) ;D :party0011:
here is some links about this event : http://www.oceanofweb.com/news/intercontinental-2009-beauty-contest.html
http://www.belta.by/modules/photostory/_img/000829_954048.jpg
Happy New Year!!!
 We have many bad things, difficulties in the country, I think it is more or less everywhere, but we have a lot of good things going on as well. And just remember, that BELARUS IS ON THE MAP ! :party0011: :chuckle:

At the front of my apartment house is a car that you can hardly see in the snow, it is continuing to snow so soon I guess no one will be able to see it anymore :chuckle::

Thanks, SG.  I'm getting "homesick" now - a lot of those pictures are familiar.
At least I'll be back soon. :)

Love the snaps!!  Just came back from Minsk having spent a month in Belarus  and I loved it  especially Minsk.  Stunning architecture, wide avenues just beautiful.  I grew up in Vienna and I felt so at home in Minsk even though it was -25 when I left!!!!

Can not wait to go back when the spring is here to enjoy the city a bit more rather than just seeing white everywhere!!

Got a few questions about Minsk, since I haven't been there in years?

1. What's the new name of Masherov Ave(Prospekta Masherova)?(or other major street changes?)
2. Any new hotels open up?
3. Any of you been to the "Mound of Glory"?(went past it on the way from the airport)
4. Is the Musical Comedy Theater still functioning as such.......or was it turned back into a synagogue(which it orignally was)?
5. Does the Camelia cafe(near Minsk 1 airport)still exist?
6. I heard there is an "Alcatraz" nightclub there. Any of you been there??
