Farewell and... welcome to Belarus!
Well, yes, friends, you realize what I`m about to say: it has been a truly fantastic month for me here at BBC Learning English Blog, and I`m thankful to all of you who were reading and/or were posting comments! That was a really inspiring and fruitful thing! Personal thanks for Neil, who was squeezing his way through my "article-less" posts! :) Hope I have managed at least to entertain you or even to provide some food for thought on some controversial issues of the modern world.
Still, that`s not "the end". Before I resign as a student-blogger of the month, let me invite you to my country. Yes, to Belarus. Don`t listen to what people sometimes say about us on TV - we`re not "North Korea N2", we are just a humble nation somewhere in the geographical centre of the Europe, and despite all the flaws and rude words of our politicians, just bear in mind that we are friendly, optimistic and hospitable.
We also have a great country with a wonderful nature - lots of forests, perfectly blue lakes, rapid streams... Not sure if I could leave links here, but just google something like "Welcome to Belarus" or "Tourism in Belarus".
We don`t have mountains, we don`t have deserts (and no sea, sorry), but for those who eager to visit a countryside, a farm, or to take a walk across endless fields or forests - not sure whether you could find any place better :)
We boast cosy, clean and nice cities. Living is mostly cheap for foreigners - you can have a great lunch for a mere $2-4, or travel by the tube for just $0,2. We have really beautiful girls, number of great places to visit and a bunch of ways to spend a nice holiday. You may come by car, train or plane. Still, in most cases you`ll need a visa :(
Belarusians are very tolerant people: muslims and Christians, people with white and dark skin color, speaking different languages live happily in Belarus and conflicts occur extremely rarely.
I love my country and I would also love to share my passion with anyone of you who is reading this. Feel free to bother me on any topic, and if you decide to visit our country - just drop me a line. I`d be glad to share my advice or even guide you through the Belarus if schedule permits.
And now, finally,
Thank you all!
