A tiny bottle of vodka stands proud beside two wall ornaments on a building downtown. These little bottles are commonly called 'unučićl' (oo-NOO-chee-chee), which means 'grandchildren' and can be easily purchased from kiosks on the street or of course in grocery stores. Just a little nip.....

See the spider web? Imagine though how big the spider would have to be to make a web on the original statue. Probably something like this one.

When I first came to what was then Yugoslavia, you always got a bottle of seltzer water on your table to mix with white wine for spritzers. Now you hardly ever see these old ones anymore. This is the newer version....which do you prefer?

There's something about a leopard print that appeals to me....but not enough to buy a coat like this, though I do have a leopard-print sleep mask and pair of gloves.
This lady had a full-length coat, and I think she might do well to ask this girl where she bought her tights.

You may have forgotten the 1999 NATO bombing of Serbia, but people here have not. Many memorials and statues have been erected around the country. The one above represents a little girl, Milica Rakic, who along with 79 other children, was killed in the bombing. The original statue (the memorial behind it was there earlier) was placed over 15 years ago, and a few months after, was stolen; thieves never found and the whereabouts of that statue are unknown.
The words on the memorial read in both Serbian and English, "We were just children."

Was hard-pressed to find a shelter shot, since I've had little free time to roam the streets. This was taken a while back in Smederevo, about 45 kilometers southeast of Belgrade. The fortress was build in the early 1400s and withstood several attacks by the Ottomans before being seriously damaged in WWII. As you can see, it's been restored.
Sheltered a lot of people! If you want to read more, see here.

On my way to visit friends on San Juan island. The ferries still are magical to me. Notice the flag is at half-mast, most likely for Rosalyn...
