Can winter be far behind....?

It's not quite officially fall yet, but those who heat with wood have already started their stockpile.  This photo of a terrace in downtown Belgrade is definitely loaded.  The occupants of the apartment most likely heat with a tile stove like the one you can see on this link. (scroll down on that link a few photos) They are not only attractive, but very efficient, though of course the advent of central heating in many apartments has brought about their demise.  We had one once, but since our apartment was small, we took it out to save place and used another kind of heater.

Leaves are not yet brown
But winter's shadow darkens

 Edit: pastis is a licorice-flavored alcoholic drinksimilar to Greek ouzo. My favorite drink as it is for many people in this area. No more ...
