Diplomacy

Just in time to celebrate normalization of relations, I stopped by Mitrovica’s Cuba Cafe for some mulled wine, after the hike to the miner’s monument. December 2014.

ArchiteXture

February 5, 2015

Bogdan Bogdanovic is one of my favorite architects… 70s Yugoslav architecture at its best. The monument, on a hill in north Mitrovica, represents a mining cart, honoring the tradition of the city and its Trepca Mines. December 2014.

Remember the barricaded bridge in Mitrovica? Things change! Now the pile of rubble is a peace park. December 2014

Anew

January 29, 2015

What do you do when you need some perspective? Revisiting an old place is one way for me… This year I went to so many new places that I hadn’t even planned on visiting, and I had a longing to see something familiar. I spent a long Christmas weekend in Kosovo seeing old friends and reminiscing about Balkan life. December 2014.
