Sunday Drive in Kosovo

On our way back from Gracanica, we didn't take the highway.  Ended up behind this... Kosovo is definitely still rural.

Becoming Regulars

While we're not as regular as the locals, we have been to this restaurant at least twice each time for the last three times we've been in Vienna.  I still love the carrot soup, and the schnitzel - I want to learn how the Viennese bread their schnitzel.  I'm in awe of it.

Decan In Dreary Day

Decan chapel is such a simple and elegant structure.  It's the original structure from the fourteenth century.  For some reason, every time I go, though, there are clouds.  The second photo is some of the outbuildings.

More Renfair Meal

As you can see from the photos, we didn't lack for food.  I put less on my plate than most, and couldn't eat it all.  The food was fresh, hot, and tasty.  Almost everyone sniggered at the spotted dick, though, especially after the intro song to it...

Renfair Entertainment

These two short videos will give you an idea of the type of entertainment we had at lunch.  The skits about the next courses were cute.

Renfair Meal

So, um, did I tell you I hadn't downloaded my phone pics for a while?  Turns out here are some more from home leave.  On our last weekend in the US, we went to Houston for the airshow and the Texas Renaissance Festival.  We bought special tickets for the renfair - ones that included lunch and entertainment in a special pavilion.  Turns out it was a very wise move!  There was a huge downpour Sunday morning, the day we went, and it was still raining when we went in for lunch.  Lunch was delicious and the entertainment was spectacular.  By the time we got out, it even had stopped raining and the sun was shining.

Centimeter Breakfast

Our Christmas market trip in December was a quick one to Vienna.  Andreas insisted on eating at one of his favorite places, Centimeter.  As you can see, breakfast was huge.  Tasted pretty good, too.

Marine Ball Food

I finally pulled photos off my phone yesterday.  These are from our first Marine Ball in Kosovo.  I am still disappointed by it.  The food was served cold and two hours late.  That was one of many problems with the ball overall.  So anyway, the food was very much on the mediocre side.

Kosovar Doily

Found this doily at our little Christmas market.  I think it's cute.

Eternal Flame

This is Sarajevo's eternal flame.  It's tucked in between where two streets come together.

More Windows And A Staircase

 More photos of pretty stained glass windows, and I always wonder about this kind of stair.

The Orthodox Church

 The Orthodox church allowed us to take photos, so Andreas did.  It was also pretty much rebuilt, just like the Catholic one, after the war.

This is a memorial to the first company of militia to form to protect Sarajevo in 1991.  Before the end of the year, most of them were dead.  Many of the rest died later in the war.

More Modern Sarajevo

More of modern Sarajevo; the architecture seems to be nineteenth century onwards.  The sculpture is from after the war.  The church is Orthodox.
