I am in Serbia this week. This is the view from my colleague's room to his balcony. Lots of stray cats in Belgrade. / Tällä viikolla ollaan Serbiassa siis. Tämä näkymä on kolleegani hotellihuoneesta hänen parvekkeelleen. Kodittomien kissojen luvattu maa.
These pictures and words tell some of my first impressions on Serbia.
/ The economical misery can be seen in the capital's street image.
YES LEGGINS AS PANTS... Always a classic!
For me the graffiti is a sign of the people being in an impossible situation.
Of course the otherside is also the amazing views.
First night we were privilaged to have gone on a Danube cruise which brought us outstanding views over the fortress of Belgrade.
The centre of Belgrade is full of beautiful history and religion.
Serbian night has moved into a pub for the ODS project gang.
The German-Finn-Norwegian night.
/ I like the wonderfully colored prams that are all over the centre.
The feeling is very similar as in Austria, not so much like in Slovenia. I haven't been to other countries in the area, so I cannot really comment on those.
Autumn in Belgrade is just beginning now.
The centre of Belgrad is a modern one.
Other side of Belgrad is the Soviet style buildings.
Belgrade also has great opportunities for shopping.
Yesterday we were on a shopping spree with my Bayruth girls. Poor Henri! He has incredible patience for staying in shoe and bag shops after the other men had fled from the company.
My night's outfit was black on black:
Top: H&M (reaally old)
Skirt, Jacket: Zara
Bag: Xi'an Muslim QuarterSome of the main sights of Belgrade would need more information to grasp their essence.
Three hour walk/shopping trip was fruitful and slightly damaging for the wallet as well.
At the moment I have a good feeling on Serbia. People are hospitable and the ones that have got jobs, work very hard. The food also is excellent, even though it's mainly meat and cheese... No wonder I like it here.
