The year is rapidly drawing to a close...and I can:t get the underline off on this keyboard. You can just be thankful it:s not actually in Japanese. Can:t locate the apostrophe either, so that puts me on a level playing field with most UK grocers.
We:ve come to Belgrade, and very nice it is too. Most of yesterday was spent on the train - left at 11 from Zagreb and got to BG at about 5:30. Here:s Lara on the train. She was remarkably well behaved, really, particularly considering I seemed to be suffering from some sort of sleeping sickness the whole day, and ended up going to bed at about 8 with the children, simply couldn:t bear to be up any longer.
Everything was very foggy outside and traveling endlessly through flat, inscrutable mist was slightly surreal.
Today we took the day to :do the town: (can:t find the apostrophe or the quotation mark, so there we are, the colon is going to stand in for everything. Not a bad punctuation solution really, would put an end to many problems for a large percentage of people.)
Here are Lara and Leo outside the Pie:s palatial Residence. Has a new pool n:all.
Here they are in front of the fort Kalemegdan. Don:t ask me about the details. I can:t even find the apostrophe. ' AHHH!! FOund it! '''
We made a bit of a mistake waiting for a bus that never came (story of my life) and got chilled to the bone, so we were very glad of the comfort of pizza and soup in an underground cellar somewhere in the bowels of BG. ...pics a little further down, I think.
This one somehow reminds me of Pooh getting stuck half-way through Rabbit's front door....
Tanks! Stuff! Excitement.
Somewhere in the mist in the background is Belgrade and the Danube...
The Yak is a hardy animal...
Ah, and pizzas duly cleared
And that's about it for tonight, I think. Lots of kisses from yet another part of the world.
