Well, its funny how these things work out. We were originally going hop off the train and get immediately onto another one to go up to Slovenia but while going down the street to get some cash from an ATM we notice a billboard with 2 words that will stop any man in his tracks. "Beer Festival!" Tyler looked at me and said, "I don't think we're going anywhere and I knew deep down that he was right. It's also funny because when I think of the word Serbia, I think of a run down country with little or nothing to offer but much like Macedonia, this is completely untrue. The city center, where the beer festival and our hotel is located, is very industrialized and stylish with clothing shops and the like all around. We decided that we will just stay here tonight and then take a night train tomorrow night to Ljubljana, Slovenia for a couple of nights.

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well last night we went to the beer festival and it went about how you would expect. WASTED. But, don't worry mom, we didn't get that drunk at all. It was pretty incredible, probably about 25 different beer tents and we only recognized one of them, BECK, but the rest were all crazy Eastern European beer companies. The other crazy part were they all run about 70-90 Denar and dollar is worth about 65 Denar so you do the math. That's just a little over a dollar for a pint of beer. It was fun but we took off around midnight because their were just too many people and we couldn't even get around so we left to go and check out the river barge clubs and bars. Those are also quite amazing.

Tonight we will be getting on a night train and travelling all night to Slovenia. I'll update when I can. See you all soon. Love, Ryan.
