Chow from Serbia!!!
I have many different pictures that I would love to show and explain each, but I wanted to give certain ones that I think you would be really interested in!!
We met for English classes within this building, which was one of many
apartment buildings in the city of Belgrade, Serbia.
Three friends that we taught English (well, tried to... they taught us more Serbian than we taught them English). In this picture, we were drawing what a character trait looks like and doesn't look like. These three were working on the trait Forgiveness.
One of the 24 hour bakeries. They sold anything from pizza (that didn't have sauce on it... they gave you ketchup to dip it into) to wonderful tasting breads!! My favorite was what looked like a crecent with Euro-cream inside of it. Euro-cream tasted like a mix between Nutella and white chocolate... delicious!!!
Some Serbian Food Words:
Bread = Hleb
Juice = Sok

This was outside of the school building that we went to visit. It had grades from 1st to 7th.
Inside you had to go up many steps to get to your classroom.
One of my friends and I talking to a seventh grade class about what we like to do in Texas for fun. Some examples were: Six Flags, Hurricane Harbor, the Museum, and many more. They were able to ask some questions. Some were questions about our holidays. They were interested in Halloween and why we dressed up.
This was a great piece of work that a fourth grade class put together about the types of food in Serbia... and it's in English so you can read it!!! :)
This picture was the lunch room that they had. If you look closely at the window, it's a little bakery that the students could go and buy bread while they wait to get picked up. In Serbia, the students go half days. One week they go from 8:30am-around 12:00. Then the next week, they go from 2:00-around 6:00.
Every other week they switch.
A beautiful cobble stone road that was lined with great outdoor restaurants. We sat down to eat at one of the restaurants for almost three hours. They like to enjoy their food and the company that they are with. It really slowed you down!!!
This was Mc Donalds!! We ate there one morning. It was really nice and even had a basement... most restaurants had one. A friend and I ordered coffee for breakfast and that is what we got!! At McDonalds!!! By the way... it was delicious!
These are a few pictures from the fortress in Belgrade. You are looking at new Belgrade city.
