A stork ("busel" in Belarusian) is considered to bring happiness
Hey, campers, you can camp just about anywhere and that's still for free in Belarus. That's one of the disappearing wonders of socialism :) What I like about Belarusian woods is that you can lie down in the grass and sleep like a baby - no poison ivy, no poisonous insects. Some snakes are poisonous but they are rare. I haven't seen a tick in my life there! And you won't be driving on a road in between barbed wire fences like you often do in US. You can stop anywhere and camp - it's free. Only Sweden of all industrial capitalist countries has the same law.
