Pristina Scenes

Here are a couple of pictures we took on our walk Saturday - that are not condom ads. This first one is the statue of Skanderbeu, the Albanian national hero. He lived in the fifteenth century and fought the Ottoman empire. Lots of things are named after him, including a local brandy.

Here is one of the few visible remnants of the war in Pristina. It's a mosque that was turned into an Orthodox church during the Serbian dominance and then sacked during the war. There's still barbed wire around it, and it's sad looking. At least KFOR isn't still guarding it like other places around Kosovo. It's safe now.
