You can never know what you will find on the way to well known places. Sometimes these finds may stick in mind for even longer time than the final destination of the trip.
It was a dusky December afternoon. The sun was getting closer to the horizon painting everything with dark shades and that day’s trip to South-eastern Poland was going to the end. However, a small abandoned house on the hill near the road made us stop and have a look inside. Quite cosy at first sight and bright from the outside, mainly because of its white walls, it had a completely different, gloomy atmosphere behind its decaying doors.
I often go to some places having without any special plan to explore them, only because they are on my way to other destinations. Baranavichy, a city in the southwestern part of Belarus, was not an exception—I went there while travelling to other places. Having no plan to explore the area at all, the best ‘plan’ that I found is simply to follow random streets and in this way reaching the side of the town that only locals know.
