Nothing without Serbia!
Caught sight of this sign at a recent street fair. These are typical Serbian shoes, still worn in places around the country and for special occasions like folk dancing. You can read the English on the sign, and the word "Bre" (pronounced 'breh') is one of those words that doesn't so much mean anything by itself, but is thrown in for emphasis, something like 'man'. The plums are a symbol of Serbia, since they're used for anything from brandy to pastries.
I'm an American woman who's lived and worked in Serbia for over 35 years. I've come to love the people with all their idiosyncrasies, and created this blog to help break some of the negative press about Serbs. I take requests for photos!
