第一百九十八天: 霸道王

這是共產和奧匈帝國建築物的對比

塞爾維亞,前南斯拉夫共和國的中堅份子,不讓科索沃、波斯尼亞等脫離共和國獨立

一直想來這裡看過究竟,一直不明白為了甚麼此國要這樣 “蝦蝦霸霸”,心想留得住共和國的身分,卻捉不緊國民的心也只屬徒然。然而來到了,我找不到一點點身經百戰的歷史痕跡,也沒察覺任何霸權影子… 都說新一代皆是幸福的,沒受過戰火洗禮,展現出來的均是歡顏和光鮮的打扮;我想,這個國家選擇了往前走… Continued 繼續看…

Day 198: Leaving Serbia… confused.

Serbs whiling away the afternoon in Belgrade

Belgrade. The Serbian capital made a good stopover point as we prepare to cut through Romania from the west.

Day 192: A day in the world’s newest capital

Lake Ohrid

We’re passing through Macedonia en route eastwards to Bulgaria. Made a short stopover at Lake Ohrid, Europe’s oldest and deepest (“and cleanest” joked a local). Nice little old town that carried a faint aura of glamour without matching prices. It’s a party town in summer – our room was right above two clubs blasting hits from the last two decades, enough to keep us awake in bed til 3am. Other than Ohrid, there wasn’t much else we wanted to do so we filled our itinerary with a daytrip to Kosovo today.
