Where I stayed
Anyway, apart from contemplating social obligations I also did some cycling. Vesna had to work early, so I woke up at the crack of dawn to a breakfast of delicious burek`s a kind of stuffed Turkish bread. These were consumed quickly and we moved swiftly out of the house that Vesna didn`t get in trouble at work. The riding today was easy with the wind behind me and it was pan flat which meant I made quick progress and did a lot of thinking.I made such good progress that I arrived after only 4 hours of riding and well in time for my second lunch. So, after searching out a Serbian woman to let me use her phone I found Mimi and Sasa`s flat. All of their housemates are really cool. Sasa a long haired easy going guy is studying electronic engineering as is his taekwondo inclined friend Nikola who`s quirky comments and frequent references to British
culture I enjoy. Then there is Igor who let me into the flat when I woke him from his hibernation who is studying computing here and finally Mimi a Biology student with a great wit about her. Almost any crude or slightly risky comment you can think of has been cleverly
said by her before you can get it out. I instantly feel at home.
Tonight we are visiting Sasa`s friend who does competition arm
wrestling. Before that though I think I`m going to experience some more funny jokes and vegetate while watching some more British TV as it seems it is all Serbia has.
