New shoes, new wine

Caught this little fellow the other day in Vršac (VUR-shots), a town about an hour or so from Belgrade toward the Romanian border. He's in a shoe store, as you can see, and is also loaded with bottles of locally produced wine. The sign in front of him invites passers-by to a wine-tasting. As for prices of the shoes, you can count about 60 dinars for $1.00 or about 73 dinars for one euro.

I dunno, Bibi, I think with our economy it would be more like 60 dinars for $50 or 1 gallon of gas. Whichever.

Oh my ! Shoes and wine. My two loves. BIbi are you sure you can't join us for both in Paris. I long to see you my friend!

Wow - this IS a great store. Vine & shoes (my order of preference is a bit different). My grandmother lived in Vrsac with my mom & aunt toward the end of the war and for a bit later until she traded for an apartment in Pula. She loved the opulance of the countryside & raised pigs, hens, etc. while there.

Wine tasting, shoe trying on. The perfect combination. You live in a very quirky part of the world.
