Friday Photo: War Stories

Signs of War -- Pristina, Kosovo

There was a special exhibit going on in downtown Prishtina while we were in town.  It detailed the stories on both sides of families who are missing relatives or even the remains of  relatives lost during the war.  Every person has their stories and many of these were just beyond tragic.  It was really hard to go and read these stories and just … [Read more...]

Friday Photo: Newborn — Prishtina, Kosovo

Newborn Statue -- Pristina, Kosovo

Kosovo was definitely one of my favorite places on the trip.  From very friendly people, to its interesting yet tragic history, it really drew me in.  Prishtina especially was the makings of a great capital, or at least hopefully one day in the future.  We probably were the only two tourists in town, or at least the only ones that we saw.  One of … [Read more...]

Bound for Kosovo

Dinner in Podgorica, Montenegro

We finished dinner and arrived late at the bus station to await our evening bus to Kosovo.  We both were just mulling around the station.  I had finished up the last few of my postcards and realized there was no easy way to get them mailed back to the states since the post-office was closed.  I had convinced the people working the bus station to … [Read more...]
