Dinner in Belgrade


Belgrade seemed tediously Western and modern in 1992.

Now it seems attractively shabby and parochial. Most of all it feels like a free country. People, one senses, say what they like here.

The man I had dinner with said Serbia is in no hurry to join the E.U. She has free trade agreements with the E.U., Russia and China and lots of Chinese, Russian and Arab investment.

He thinks once Serbia joins the E.U. the outflow of people to jobs in the West will ruin the country.
