ABC Wednesday--"Y" is for "youth"


Alternately, it's been soaking wet or very, very hot here in Belgrade. This photo was taken on a hot day while visiting the Belgrade zoo.  My granddaughter was spending a few days with me, so we decided to hit the zoo early, and I am glad we did. Just us and the animals for quite a while.

Here she is giving the statue of Sami the Chimp a sip of water....  Sami was a Belgrade zoo legend, and you really should read about him right here.

Ah, youth...but I have to say the youthful Mila and her not-so-youthful grandma held up well.

Cooling off


You're  not really allowed to go dipping in public fountains, but these two boys did. For a while they sat on the bench across from me, hesitating whether or not to take the plunge.  As you see, they did, and were soon joined by a four-legged friend who was not so hesitant.

Berries I know, berries I don't


The markets are  full of yummy summer produce, including all kinds of berries. I recognize on this photo raspberries, blackberries, currants, and (I think) chokeberries on the right, but I can't remember the name of the ones in the middle that look like little red onions.   Seller told me, but I forgot...

FLASH:  Thanks to Therese (See comments), I found that they unknown ones are gooseberries.  They're called ogrozd here....no wonder I forgot their name!

Fighters



I tried to find information about this statue downtown in a passage, but to no avail. It seems to be depicting Serbs fighting their enemies at different times in history.

You've got mail!


If  you do, you'd better make sure your mailbox has a door...otherwise your mail might be up for grabs.

Spotted in an old passageway downtown.

Rooftop view?


A friend and I had heard about a cafe on the roof of one of Belgrade's auditoriums downtown, so up we went.

Nothing special, and not even a great view...

SKYWATCH--riverboat


It's gettin' on to summer. This riverboat usually transports tourists, but it doesn't seem to have any passengers.

Anyway, made for a good shot.
