Aw, admit it, they’re beautiful. And don’t knock postcards. In Minsk, there aren’t many to be bought. Yes, you can buy packs of what appear to be postcards, and their prices are moderate — but turn them over and you’ll see that most are full of text. I bought one set that has five little images on the obverse of each: on the back are short explanations of each, in Belarusian, Russian, English, Polish, and German.
