44 times

P1100694

44 times Belgrade has been burnt to the ground. Traces removed of people, buildings, deep holes in history. I’ve been here lots but this time it’s been two months consecutively. What a difference to take a city’s pulse like this, especially somewhere that is warm and exciting but looks grey and unloved. It’s a city where the layers of life come at you in a different way, you can’t see the things that have happened so easily. Maybe some cities are always ‘wanted’ from the then invaders to the now tourists. One month more and I know it will be hard to leave. (Though I love you London and you’re the best in autumn).
