Well, probably not a very loud "Ka-boom" from this little Yugoslav Army tank dated 1934. Probably not enough oomph to send a cannonball to the archaic waste basket nearby. If you live in Europe and are of a certain age, ahem, you may remember these litter baskets. You'd toss trash in them and the cleaning person would come around, lift up the basket, then sweep the trash into a little shovel and then into a big bin and move on.

I've lived here for nearly 38 years.... Gotten used to a lot, but one thing that still irks me is the Serbs' stubbornness.
I often pass this restaurant on the pedestrian street, Knez Mihailova. This chalkboard has two sides--one menu in Serbian, the other in English....almost. Would most foreigners know what 'przenice' is??
For your information, 'przenice' is French toast. I called over a waiter and pointed this out and told him I'd be happy to write it down for him. At this point he got very indignant and said, "Well, we have photos if they don't understand." I countered, "Fine, but isn't it easier just to write it in English? And then why don't you have, for example, 'kajgan' for omelet, too?" He got huffy and showed me the photos.... He said he'd change it...I'll be strolling back.
I asked if I could take a photo since I have a photoblog and thought my readers might get a chuckle out of this....and to that he agreed. (?) I should have asked him to pose, but didn't want to push my luck.
There are two other mistakes I told him to look for....do you see them?

Bored, and only with my 35mm, since I have not dug out the rest of my camera equipment yet (still unpacking boxes after my apartment renovation--where ARE those lenses....?), I took a photo out my kitchen window.
It's only when I zoomed in that I saw the juxtaposition between the sign and the couple on their little rooftop terrace. The sign reads, "There's only one life, take only the best." The billboard is for a furniture store.
This post is a double-header, since I am using this photo for SKYWATCH and for James' WEEKEND REFLECTIONS. Here we see the reflectio...
