I’ve got to see a man about a horse…
Our guests leave today, but we won’t be a twosome for long-Muz’s sister is arriving in Belgrade an hour after our current guests fly home. We’ll have a steady stream of guests over the next few weeks to soak in the Serbian sunshine.
The first thing I do is walk guests to Republic Square, up Knez Mihailova, and to Kalemegdan. It’s a nice way to reset jet-lagged minds, offer caffeine, and introduce people to a lovely city. And if that doesn’t wake them up, looking at military equipment usually does the trick. I’ll be making this trip quite a few times, but I never tire of it.
It’s exciting to show people “my” city, to see it through their eyes, and learn something new in return. I knew Serbians loved children, but traveling with an adorable three-year old really brought it home. I had forgotten how strong rakija seems when you don’t drink it on a regular basis. And I took the great coffee here for granted. I’m looking forward to new (re)discoveries as the weeks go by. So, any suggestions for things to show visitors in Serbia?
