Our guide explained to us that Belgrade has been razed to the ground on no less than forty occasions. On an unrelated note, it’s also the place where Amy Winehouse performed her last concert.
Dinner is in the outdoor area of a cute little Serbian restaurant. Being Day 3 of the Ottoman Trek, we’re starting to form friendships. I’m at a table of four people whose names all begin with ‘A’, and we decide to celebrate with a round of cosmopolitans. It made sense at the time.
I’ve been a little sick for the last few days, so my voice is hoarse. I gesture to the waiter, and when he comes over I point to the word ‘cosmopolitan’ in the menu and croak barely audibly “four cosmopolitans please”. He looks at me, looks at the menu, looks at the group, laughs himself silly, and walks away.
