What happened to Slovenia's most popular mayor who happened to be black as well?

Past few years, I don't know what to think about Belarus. The country is all weird. They have dictature, but the opposition is somehow quite weak and people from there seem to be happy. And it seems the travelling restrictions is getting looser as I've seen so many Belarussians on European roads than ever before. And it needs to be stressed that they don't look like poor people at all (I mean like us in cheap cars possessing cheap junk food in tins and pates when Iron curtain fell down).

I don't think I have seen cheap cars with BY plates in Europe. Maybe only rich people (party members) from there afford to travel to the West?

I think that Belarus is a great and modern country.Dictatorship doesn't has to be bad if you know how to act properly and behave.I think that soon Belarus is going to be as modern as a vestern Europe countrys.

It is fairly easy to travel from Belarus for Belorussians. It is not that easy to travel from Belarus inside e. g. EU. Visa is the biggest problem. It is also bit troublesome to travel to Belarus., but not a big deal. One interesting thing is that the belorussians living abroad have to deposit substantial amount of money when traveling to Belarus. This so that they would not sell their cars there. I am not sure what counts for foreigners. Being in a "party" is irrelevant in Belarus for travel, having money is what counts. Belarus in many ways resembles China, but the party is not that relevant, it is rather personal ties, positions etc. The country is rather small for creating such party apparatus as china. It is quite possible to do very profitable business there if you share with the right people.

It is very interesting to compare the evolvement of Belarus and Ukraine. Ukraine was rather rich compared to Belarus in the SSSR times but ended up much poorer in the freedom times.

As about traveling. Of course that mostly the richest travel as traveling is expensive. And you rarely see poor man's old cars abroad in general, because it is not feasible for long distances anyway.

I've seen lot of middle-class families in Greece, just like mine. Cars like Volkswagen Passat or Skoda Fabia. Definitely not poor.

But once I've seen a Cadillac Escalade from Belarus. Black colour, black windows and licence plate like AAA1111AAA.

OMG OMG duuude

The roads seem pretty nice, but I like the part where one cop takes the gun and the other one has to content himself with throwing rocks

Apart the dictatorship, that is even worse than the Russian one, Belarus has a GDP pro capita of 6,739$, that is extremely low for European standards.

How long must you as a driver remember a traffic sign? In your opinion is it OK to have a sign "100" wich is valid 12 km long?

No. Reminder signs must be placed after every exit. If the distance is too long between exits, then reminder signs must be placed on intervals.
