This is from US Embassy Minsk, one of the USG’s smallest missions.  Due to restrictions imposed unilaterally by the Belarusian Government in 2008 on the number of U.S. diplomats allowed in Minsk, the American Embassy was forced to reduce its staff from 35 to five diplomats as well as withdraw its Ambassador. The number of U.S. diplomats was later increased to six in July 2014.

I’m the “Cheesehead” – a nickname we use in the U.S. for people from the state of Wisconsin, which produces some of America’s best cheese. What better place for a Cheesehead to hang out than the 3rd Annual Cheese Festival, which was held at the Botanical Gardens in #Minsk on June 20, 2015
