Bound Together

Danny; Minsk Belarus 
Of all the things besides music that tie us together as humans, the culinary arts often top the list. We all delight in sharing favorite recipes, pics of food and drink.
 Here are some pics of my local shopping adventure with Brian this morning. 

All the stuff in my basket cost about $4.00. That's about 60,000 Belarusian rubles. 15,000 rubles equals one U.S. dollar. Below is one my favorite dishes, a cold beet soup and a potato, egg, carrots and pea salad. This is  traditional
fare here.

This evening we played a concert at the Belarus Philharmonic Hall. Our good friend US Charge d'affaires to Belarus Scott Roland,  introduced us to a packed house. The concert was so much fun and the audience gave us two standing ovations and encores. We had the pleasure of meeting the Brittish ambassador as well as the UN ambassador to Belarus.
