WEEKEND REFLECTIONS--On the Orient Express


Well, not exactly ON the Orient Express, but IN it...sort of.  The Orient Express in question here is a restaurant/cafe inside Belgrade's Hotel Balkan, outside of which I took this photo.  In the reflection you can see a fountain that stands in front of the Hotel Moskva, a piece of which is visible to the left.

The original train the Orient Express ceased to run on December 14th, 2009, but its route had included Belgrade. I remember seeing the train on one of its stopovers quite a while ago.

I didn't know that! A fine reflective shot, too. So what's the food like at the Orient Express?

There's almost more going on here than my simple mind can grasp.

I've seen places with a Hotel de Paris but a Hotel Moskva as a symbol of elegance is alien over here.

Didn't know the Orient Express had gone out of business. We took the Palace on Wheels in India some years ago. It was a blast.

Great reflections! I saw the Orient Express in the train station in Bologna—must have been shortly before it stopped running. A shiny vision in black and brass!
