Project 365: Day 222 – Belgrade from Dawn to dusk

8th February 2015 – Belgrade, Serbia

What begins with an enfolding dawn,
Has to end in a dusk, no matter where.
We strived through walks away from warmth,
And strive it in style, rather apocryphal flair.

The victor leads into the night – Belgrade, Serbia

So, last night began with the Serbian Rakia, as planned. But it went much more than that.

I met someone from the local Couchsurfing community, who took me around the bars in Belgrade. Masa was an awesome guide for Belgrade, as she ended up taking me to another Rocknroll club, and then finishing off in an underground club. We partied till the wee hours of the morning, and by the time I got back to the hostel and talked to the receptionists for a bit, it was already dawn.

And I slept like a baby. Again.

Only to wake up in the evening, and head to a photo walk with 2 other couch surfers. Dusko and Steffanie were fun people to walk with, especially in the chilling cold winds of Belgrade. Our fingers literally got a frostbite whenever we tried to click something. But still we clicked away at the dusk. Especially around the victor monument, in the Belgrade fortress. The Victor (or Pobednik) is Belgrade’s most recognisable landmark, and commemorate the Serbian victory over the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian armies during WWI.

And the night was capped off with a nice Norwegian movie at the Kultural Centuri Grad, where I was pretty much the only non-Serbian person in the crowd. Rad experience, that one!
