My host failed to alert us the night before that his father was marching in a 9am May Day contingent in Nyesviz. Missing that was tragic. However, we did get some trippy scenes from the kiddie party afterward.
Later on, my sherpa got some video of Victory Day preparations in Nyesviz on May 7th, the day we left for Minsk.
Then, on May 9th, we had a good time at Victory Square commemorating the Peoples Deeds against the capitalist hyenas.
