The surreal suburbia of Belgrade
I hesitated to post this photo because I feared that it would spread misconceptions about Belgrade being a backward city. But then I thought, it’s a goat herder…on a major road leading toward Zemun…this is nuts!
This is one of the things that makes life so interesting here. Within five(ish) square miles of my home, Amy Winehouse will perform in a fortress and international ballet stars dance at the National Theater. Sunday morning, as Australian club kids were emerging from secret, smoke-filled techno parties, this guy was taking his goats on a sunrise stroll. All in Belgrade. Only in Belgrade.
It’s not exactly life in New York City, some might say. To which I would respond, exactly.
