"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    Hi, I am from Belgrade, which is capital and the largest city of Serbia. There are two millione people in Belgrade and always something happens.
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 19,969 mod
    @Lana what I know about Serbia is his complicated geography, but I learned earlier at school about Yugoslavia, but about 10 years ago everything changed. ( I am ritered now)
    What me at that time fascinated was the story of the Ottoman Bridge. It was supposed to be a prescribed culture, that sixteen-year-old boys from Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina jumped from the historic bridge Stari Most in the icy Neretva River to start a successful life as an adult.

    Hi @Andika nice to meet you too.
    Where are you from?
  • AndikaAndika Posts: 23 ✭✭
    Hi @arzulita i'm from Indonesia :smiley:
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 37,341 mod
    @Lana (and @markov)I first visited Yugoslavia in 1981 before it split into several different countries. I returned last year to visit Lubjiana, Zagreb, Sarajevo and Split. I will go back as I need more time to explore the region.

    In 1981 my friend and I were travelling by train inter railing in Eastern Europe @Paulette - Czechoslovkia, Hungry, Romania, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia hardly seemed communist in comparison to the other countries (Hungry seemed a bit more liberal than the others too). We were about the only western tourists travelling to these places then! It was a fascinating trip.

    @Andika I like İndonesia it's a beautiful country :) I wish to travel there someday.
  • AndikaAndika Posts: 23 ✭✭
    @arzulita , amen :) where are you from by the way?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 37,341 mod
    @Andika where in Indonesia are you from? I know it is a very big country. I visited East Java a few years ago and I was very impressed.

    @mheredge thanks :) there are so much beautiful landscape, i was born in middle of Java, but now i'm living in Jakarta, what was your plan to visit East Java?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 37,341 mod
    I visited for five days with my Singaporean friends on a tour of your magnificent temples @Andika. I then stayed an extra couple of days with a friend to visit Mount Bromo. I spent a couple of days in Ubud in Balintore before continuing to Australia. I never saw anything of Jakarta.
  • LanaLana Posts: 23 ✭✭
    @Paulette, @mheredge Once upon a time there was Yugoslavia...It was big and powerful country and, of course communist. Today, situation is completely different. Yugoslavia doesen't exist any more. Yugoslavia broke up into a few countries and one of them is Serbia, where I live. Belgrade is beautiful city and every foreigner who comes to our country be impressed.
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 19,969 mod
    @Lana, indeed the history of Serbia is very complicated its borders changed many times and I believe Serbia has eight neigbor countries.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 37,341 mod
    I certainly was impressed by the whole region @Lana.

    I'm visiting Toulouse, in the southwest of France. I love staying in hostels because there you can meet people from all over the world. Sitting next to me is a Japanese boy who was both in Osaka (@Shiny03), then last night I shared a dorm with a French girl from the north who had been attending a course for supervising children at summer camps, a young Italian from Piedmont who's hiking the Compostella pilgrimage route, and a Turkish guy from Normandy taking an exam. There a funny Spanish guy here too who plays the piano (badly) but it's still nice.
