Hello From Belgrade!! Topic of Day One: Jet lag!! It wore off, but Day One was a trip!
Followed closely by (for Brenna): Turkish Coffee!!! Brenna is learning at the elbow of a master (our hostess Vukosava) how to make a cup as good as this one.
Belgrade with our friends is such a good way
to start our trip. The city is alive and busy and has a real cosmopolitan, yet gritty, feel. With Darinka's guidance we navigated the city like little lambs. Thank heaven for her. We walked to a little local market area for breakfast in the morning, bought peaches and pears and fresh pastries with Feta and meat inside.
By nightfall we were in Old Town for dinner at one of Darinka's favorite restaurants, eating chivopchichi and drinking Gorki List. The musicians came over, and we pulled out the video camera -- take a look and listen.
