We were joined on the train to Belgrade by a friendly German woman who works on a WWOOFing farm (willing workers on organic farms). She has lived in Serbia for the past five years and was able to tell us a bit about Serbia and its people. We decided to stay at a hotel recommended by our friend Paolo and spent our first day exploring the citadel, a massive area of ruins. We also checked out the main pedestrian streets and had a dinner of serbian goulash and Serbian baklava. Now, we dont know if it was the dinner or the water, but we both started vomiting around midnight and didnt leave the hotel room at all the next day. We decided to spend one more night in Serbia to make up for our day of rest and recovery and checked out some beautiful cathedrals and the worlds largest orthodox church. Tonight, we are taking the night train to Bratislava.
Let me go a little bit farther with this getting sick thing. We almost died! The streak ended. It has been six years since the last time I vomited! Well, now I am back to two days. I did not leave the hotel room for about 30 hours. On the bright side, I saw Shaft in Africa. It was great. Belgrade is a really great city. Kim was a bit concerned about coming here since we bombed the hell out of it a few years ago (good reason to be concerned), but I convinced her. And no, my convincing does know bounds because she refused to go to Bosnia. Anyway, this place is really nice as are the people. I encourage people to visit this pleasant and welcoming city.
