At the invitation of the President, for the first time ever schoolchildren from Egypt, India and Vietnam came to Belarus for vacations and recuperation. A rich program has been set for the children arriving on the banks of Lake Naroch: from sports to excursions on ecological trails. On the first day an "Evening of Friendship" was held by the campfire. Girls danced the national Indian dance kathak, guests from Vietnam recited Pushkin, and Belarusians treated their guests to baked jacket potatoes. The shift will last until August 27. Then foreign guests will spend several days doing excursions. They will visit the country's central universities, a water park, national museums.
