Militsia!

Our venture out yesterday was to buy a vacuum. Both boys went with me. We saw many militsia (police) out on the streets. They were pulling people over randomly. After we purchased the vacuum it was very difficult to hail a taxi at the usual place. The taxi drivers appeared to be avoiding the area where the militsia were. Tom thinks that perhaps some of the taxi drivers did not have licenses or the proper documents. We walked up a block and a half until I was able to make eye contact with a driver! He slowed down so we jumped in quickly and sped away. We saw the militsia again as we went around the corner on the next major street. I know that it is Memorial weekend in the States but there is no such holiday here. Perhaps there is a dignitary in town!
