Snyadin, Belarus

A familiar sight: pushing the bus out of mud while travelling through Belorussian fields on the way to the site.

Once when the bus got stuck, the Russians made an improvement to the road by hacking down small trees and laying them in the tire grooves. It worked nicely for a couple of days.
