Read, Write, Run, Roam

RHOB has a Facebook page! (And yes, I know it’s not 2007.)

It’s ironic that I’ve written a blog for over a year. Previously, I thought blogs, twitter and Facebook were for people with superior technology skills or way too much free time. Actually, I still think that. (I fall into the latter category.)

Now that I’m leaving Serbia, I’m not sure what I’ll do with the blog. It seems better to end it on a certain date than to have inconsistent posts. But readers, it’s hard to quit you. You’ve provided great insight and humor, and I’d love to keep the conversation going even if I don’t have time to share my deep thoughts on dogs and alcohol and food.

With that in mind, I’ve made a Facebook page.  I figured it’s fitting for Belgrade, since 41% of Serbians have a Facebook page, and I estimate 65% of Beogradjani have one. It’s practically empty, and the next two weeks are crazy in RHOB land, but I’ll be sure to post photos, etc, soon. Stay tuned for my adventures finding domaca kafa in the States and explaining the name Milos to lots of Americans…

Tomorrow is packing day, so no post unless I go positively insane and need to rant.

    I have really enjoyed your blog from the beginning, although this is my first comment. Your writing is exceptional and I hope you will keep it going (at least few posts on your re-adaptation to life in the States).
    And hopefully you will visit Belgrade some time again in the future.
    Safe journey and good luck!

    Does Milos speak Serbian? How will your American friends tell him to stop chewing on their slippers?

  5. Pervy, (it’s Prvi, by the way), Milos speaks mnogo Srpskog i Ingleskog but he still will not listen. Hide your slippers.

  6. I am sad to say I am leaving for the U.S.–Washington, DC in fact, which was our home before we moved here. Muz’s contract was for one year and the year has flown by! I will absolutely come back. Not sure when, but hoping for summer of next year unless some of our Serbian friends can make it to the US.

  7. Anon, thank you so much–and thanks for commenting! I will definitely post about adapting to life back in the states. I will also try not to make this some sad blog about how much I miss Belgrade, but I can’t promise anything. 🙂

    Dear RHOB,

    I hope you continue writing about your experiences and adventures because all of your posts were well written, funny and insightful. It’s always interesting to see known things through other people’s eyes. I wish you good luck with packing 🙂

    I am going to miss your writing on this blog so very much but I look forward to whatever your next writing adventure is. There will be one, right??? * chews fingernails, looks around nervously, flips table*

    We can’t wait to have you back in DC!

    I am not sad that you are leaving Belgrade. I am so excited to be greeting you and Milos at the airport on Sunday! HOLLA!

  13. Now you are on your way home. . or close to home by now. I hear there is a lot of snow hitting the east coast. Be safe and warm and good luck with the transition! I will really MISS your well written and insightful blog. We will for sure keep in touch and I am sure I will have loads of questions for you as we settle into Serbia.

  14. Don’t stop writing. Don’t. Even if you have to rename it Former-RHOB. You go girl!
