“I keep telling my friends to come to Minsk”

How a British man became a man of Minsk

It is always useful to anyone who would like to visit a foreign land to have a chat with someone who has been there for a while. Ian is a British, ex-military, man who settled down in Belarus and has been living in Minsk for seven years. Here he shares his experiences about his life in this country.  There are some weird and bizarre things here, he explains, but, in general, Belarus and its capital Minsk is a nice place to live in.  Information about health care, police, places to visit, Belarusian bureaucracy, driving, weather, national holidays,  the expat  community  in Belarus and many other things  he talks about will definitely help our readers to avoid problems and pitfalls, whilst enhancing the enjoyment of their stay in Minsk and Belarus
