My Serbian Experience...
Highs: Meeting Marija who showed me around and who I hung out with while in Belgrade;
peacefulness of the Belgrade Fortress; how comfortable I felt.
Lows: Not having much time here since I stretched my time in Montenegro longer.
Best Moment: Definitely being able to hang out with Marija and swapping stories with her. And
then being given a 'key' that she wrote a note on. I told her I am going to keep it with me and if I ever
feel a bit down, I am going to pull it out and it will put a smile on my face.
Craziest Moment: Probably that I ended up going with a girl to stay with her at her apartment -
even though I didn't even talk to her at all on my train ride (there was someone sitting in between us
so I never really even saw her).
Smells: The 'pekaras' (i.e. bakeries); rich chocolate aromas from my massage treatment.
Sounds: Don't recall any.
Sights: The Citadel; the main squares and parks.
Tastes: Bureks; strudel; toasted sandwiches; iced gingerbread-type of cookies; goulash.
Purchases: A pair of earrings.
Street Food: Bureks; crepes; pizza; ice cream.
Fun Food Finds:
Western Companies Out Here: McDonald's; Zara; Mango; Lush.
