Crossing the border to Lithuania took WSGA exactly 30 minutes and aroused only smiles and handshakes of the astonished border officials. Who says Belarusian custom procedures are a drag? You'll never hear that from our side! Our luggage wasn't even checked.
WSGA wishes to thank all the people who helped them make her journey possible. Here we are with Lucie, a fantastic Lithuanian woman who gave us shelter on our last day.
Fjodor (Theodore pour les amis) was WSGA's very first co-walker, accompanying us from Smarghon to Osjmianets. The Grande Armee's bivouacs on that stretch of road have no secrets for Fjodor, who gladly told us all the details. He even knew the exact places where the restaurants stood in those days. We looked for more modern ones to quench our thirst and hunger, but unluckily found none. Sadly, this means that business on the Grande Armee's road is going downward.
And here's one more guy we want to thank from the bottom of our heart, for he made our journey through Belarus an incredible succession of hospitable meetings and events. Anatoli (Tolek pour les amis) from Borisov!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a friend!!!!!!
