Maybe that person owns a second home in your town? IDK... It could be the car that the diplomat bought for his kid? It could be anything, but a guestarbeiter seems far fetched imo.

1. 2003 Ford Focus 2.3L (petrol)
2. Generally Samsung S500 (it can also take neat viedeos) and rarely Canon 350D
3. Since Saturday, my favourite road is Sea to Sky Highway in British Columbia (provincial route 99)
4. The majority of roads in Kaliningrad region are in a very bad shape. The worst motorway, however, was I-80 from Nevada border to Truckee, California
5. In Russia, my favourite place was Karelia Republic, and in the USA it is the Glacier National Park.
6. My city is so small that it doesn't have anything interesting

Near embassies, you can see a lot of exotic plates. I saw already Iranian, Dubai, and US plates. However, i did see a truck with mongolian plates once at a trucking restaurant near Venlo (NL).

Anybody driven on Belarussian motorways? According to Google Maps they seem to have more motorways than Ukraine, Romania & Bulgaria .

but if he was a diplomat, he would have CMD plates, and he has regular Liechensteiner plates. next time i see him, i'll ask him i'm sure he'll come here for Christmas, as all gastarbeiters do. he comes each Christmas, Easter and for summer holidays.

at Verso: if you have expensive car, there is a way to make registration much cheaper if you have some exotic plates, Tuvalu is one of countries where you can do it. i don't know details, it was in newspapers, but i think that registration worths for few years, so you're paying only insurance, or s'thing like that. i've been calulating somewhen, you must have a car that worths more than 50 000 € if you would make some profit

I have seen pics. It's not as motorway-like as Western European motorways, but more like an expressway. It has tollbarriers sometimes. However, Minsk has a quite extensive motorway-system, and that's not all Soviet-era motorway.

You mean motorways are actually built under Lukashenka's regime?

It would be interesting to have a thread dedicated to Belarus, but I doubt there are many pictures.

Belarusian motorways are up to Western standards, just the pavement is what concerns me.

Mongolian? Unbelievable. But US plates are nothing special.

Have you guys changed your tyres? I'm going to do it now.
Or maybe you don't need to change in your countries?

You mean winterreifen (winter tyres)? Nah, it's not worth for my car, buying them costs like € 80 per tyre. And it doesn't snow or ice that often here.
