Roberto was impressed with the town center, comparing it to a Swiss town. The village left the Italian guest delighted:

“I am happy. I like the atmosphere here. I thought that people in the village drink a lot because they have a boring life, but actually it is the opposite. I think people feel better here than they do in Minsk”.

Finally, Roberto got acquainted with a successful video blogger Mikalai, who runs a disco in a village club and writes songs for his YouTube channel. These songs are performed by local girls and get millions of views! And Mikalai’s video blog “Lyadavichy Fazenda” was viewd by more than fifty million people in total.
