Normally the Belgrade Marathon is held sometime in April, but this year it's been moved to June.
I see more and more people in raining. I love this guy's spiffy shoes.

Today is Serbian Orthodox Easter. I colored eggs yesterday. In the top photo in the egg cup is this year's first egg, always colored red, at least according to my husband's family. Beside it lies last year's red egg, which according to tradition, should be buried. You may wonder how you can keep an egg all year. You can...it just dries up inside and when shaken, I can hear the thumpy-thump of the dried up yolk.
The second photo is just an awfully cute whimsical ceramic 'egg'.

Not the latest dirt here, but from about six years ago. This is me in the Deliblato Sands, the largest sandy terrain in Europe, once part of a vast prehistoric desert, having originated from the withdrawal of the Pannonian Sea.
I still have the h at, pants, jacket, shoes, and purse, but sadly no longer my little black dog, Bibi, who is following. I don't have the camera either, having recently switched to mirrorless.
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust...

This mural graces one of the walls of Vladislav Ribnikar elementary school in downtown Belgrade. Vladislav Ribnikar was a journalist and founder of Serbia's most respected newspaper, Politika.
This school has had since 1927 a French program offering six classes per week starting in first grade (other schools begin a foreign language in grade three), with teachers from France.
It's understandable then why the mural featuring Antoine de Saint-Exupery's THE LITTLE PRINCE presides over the schoolyard.

Truthfully, this is not a winter photo. It was taken about two weeks ago near Kovin, Serbia. Still too wintry-looking for me. Bring on the warmer weather! (Today it IS warm!)

I wish I had a garage where I could park a bike or Vespa without worrying it would get stolen. On the other hand, Belgrade traffic is so bad now that biking would be unsafe.
So I'll content myself with photos of Vespas, for example.
This post goes out to former CDP blogger, Chuck Pefley of Seattle, who had a red one.

These horses (there is another almost identical statue on the other side of the stairs leading to the Parliament) are hard to resist, almost at any times a day, for they make a very impressive sight.
I've shown you them several times before, most recently last December.

Milorad Pavić (1929 - 2009) was a Serbian writer from a well-known family of writers. He is mainly known for his poetry and novels. You can read more about him by clicking here.
There is a statue of him in Tasmajdan Park near me where I walk my dog every morning. In this photo, he is getting a facial from these two friendly 'cosmeticians'.

OK, I had said the other day that another photo was my last from Pancevo for the moment, but I couldn't resist posting this building, which I think I photograph (but not necessarily post) every time I visit. Would love to live there and have that balcony...

FLASH: You read it here first!
Just in and brought to you in a flashback from 1971 in the Nostradamus Daily, future photoblogger Yankee-in-Belgrade ascends Notre-Dame rooftop! Yes, you read that correctly. Pat, formerly a.k.a Bibi, cast her fate to the wind and with the help of a little French boy who took her photo and who we hope is reading this, scurried up the roof on the north tower and held on to a flagpole.
Our sources tell us the pole has long since disappeared, but Yankee-in-Belgrade, predicted 50 years ago by Nostradamus, is still going strong. Says she today, "Nostradamus channeled me that day to say that one day the roof will disappear, so I figured, 'Carpe diem!' Glad I did."
