ABC WEDNESDAY "B" is for " bršljan"

" Bršljan" (BURSH-lyan) is the Serbian word for "ivy," and it's perfect for today's ABCWEDNESDAY.   These shots were taken of two different houses, but each appears to be lived in. Ivy is really desctructive for walls, though...

These two ladies live across the street from me, and I often see them out on their balcony. They're always neat as a pin (ok, as pinS!), not a hair out of place. This time they were out watching the weekly demonstration that takes place every Friday...protesting the current government, of course. No end in sight, so I'll be seeing a lot more of them.

Bread and buns

There's a chain of bakers in town called Lebovski, perhaps referring to the cult film "The Great Lebowski," but also because the Serbian word for 'bread' is 'hleb,' often said rapidly as '  'leb.'

In any case, they make terrific bread. Here's their site, only in Serbian, if you'd like to have a read/look.

ABC WEDNESDAY: "A" is for "Alone, but not bored...."

This little old lady was deeply engrossed in a crossword puzzle, and didn't notice I was taking her photo. I love  how she daintily holds her cigarette.

Happy School

I think this is a  high school...not sure who painted this jazzy mural, but it's an eyecatcher.
