Belarus villagers prefer hard work to city smoke
In Belarus, many villagers still live off the land - planting, harvesting and carrying on ancient folk traditions.

POGOST, Belarus
Ekaterina Panchenya, 75, works on embroidery at her home in the village of Pogost, Belarus. "I do everything myself: feed the animals in the barn, the chickens in the yard, and I pickle and preserve all the vegetables. The river is nearby, the forest, mushrooms and berries in the summer. No, I'll never in my life move to town," she said. Panchenya is also skilled in local folk traditions such as floral embroidery, a cappella choral singing and ancient pagan ceremonies, which survived the ideological white-washing of the Soviet era.
