Going first

Greetings from Karl Marx Street! We’ve arrived safely in Minsk, and our 13-year-old Lydia is already out ahead of me on photo reports. She’s started a blog for her friends. You can check it out here if you wish. My (grown-up) photo reports will begin coming your way soon. Thanks for journeying with us! Much love, Doug Brendel
