On the Road Again #73


Belgrade was a dismal place, Serbian shit hole - abiding memories of poverty and ground down people and that was before their genocidal tendencies surfaced in plain view many years later.
You could buy individual cigarettes or slices of bread from street vendors as many couldn’t afford a full packet or loaf. Many products were made by state factories such as Jugo Cola, Jugo tyres, Jugo beer and biggest joke Jugo cars and they were all crap. Any youthful tendency towards socialism quickly evaporated. This glimpse behind the Iron Curtain was a salutary lesson that rooted us robustly in the West.

    A wonderful expose in words.
