THEME DAY: Reflections--Turkish Pastries

Serbia was under Turkish rule for 500 years, and many traces remain in the language, music, overall culture, and of course the food. Turkish pastries are still appreciated, as seen from these sweet yummies in a shop window. Others are stacked in a tray visible in the reflection.

Minjoni girl...don't know the name of the street, but if you walk on Zmaj Jovina away from K. Mihailova you get to Obilicev Venac. Cross that street that leads to the parking garage. Keep going, and it's on the little street that is sort of a continuation of Zmaj Jovian, on the right side.

Definitely the most delicious reflection of the day. The silver coffee pot(?) is so lovely.

minjoni girl said...

Bibi, thanks for the clarification. Would that be on Toplicin venac?

Yum. Yum. And yum!

Bibi said...

Minjoni,

I guess so...the little street that cuts to the left of Tanjug.
