My dear Belgrade, I have not written you for a long time, I hope you will not be angry on me, because everyday life and duties did not allow me to write you earlier, so I took this morning off to write to you. How are you? What are you doing? Is there anything new in your life? Did anything change until I was gone?
I hope you will have some nice news for me! The newspapers report that the biggest Serbian friend comes to visit us, so if I grab some free time, maybe I will come to see you, and by the way to say hello our great friend. I heard that people is very happy because of him, they are sure that much of things in Serbia will change, maybe the salaries and pensions will finally increase slightly, so the people will at least will have the real feeling that they are actually alive…
My mother wrote couple days ago has wrote me that our lovely elderly neighbour which we call Aunt Mica is especially feeling happy, telling everyone how she prepared the most beautiful dress and coat she wore at her wedding and kept those things for almost 50 years in her closet because of some special occasion which will happen. When our great friend appears on our TV screens, Aunt Mica does not blink at all, there is no power from too much excitement to do such a thing. I’m glad that at least she will fulfill her great wish, since many of us have not succeeded – Dreaming the dreams with the open eyes.
It’s not bad here abroad, You’ve been working from morning until you see that the sun has gone down, just behind of the buildings that you do not need to search for it. You live somehow, what our people would say: “Life goes on, I will go with it because that’s how it must to be!”. People here don’t know what it means when your salary is delayed, because here everything is well known and when the salary will be paid, all the bills will be directly paid from your account, there is no exception or some delay!
How am I? It’s not bad I’m not complaining, just trying my best to live nicely, I’ve finished various schools and my sister too, because of something, you will feel strange because you’re still away from home. In the first month, you will be caught by depression and nostalgia, but when your new salary transfers on your bank account, you will remember why you left your country. Believe me, my Belgrade, here abroad you live like at the airport, it’s still a free zone, but you are not with them and also you are not with your people. We, Serbs are not a bad people at all, we have not been ever something like that, just our life was something that was not perfect.
Everyone heard about us, books are being written, movies are being made, foreign bloggers come to Serbia… Not everything is so bad in the country of Serbia. It will be all right, but it still has something to change for us. My dear Belgrade, I’m sure you’re wondering what I am doing right now? I’m happy! I’m happy that I will come home, just to see you, by the way and to say hello to a great friend of Serbia who knows maybe he also follows world online trends and he will come out of the car to make some selfies with us who are looking forward to it, I hope it will be! Maybe it will not, but hope dies last!
Tell me as soon as possible if some of our friends are coming soon in Serbia, I will buy a flight ticket on time while these incredible sales of air tickets are on! Ideas I can come to see you for 20, 30 euros! It’s just Incredible!
I have to tell you that I am glad we will soon see each other again, right now I am packing a new white Zara coat, which I bought at the final sales, it was not easy to get it, but it was worth it, believe me! My dream was to welcome our great friend in crystal white coat, which is otherwise a symbol of peace and friendship.
I also bought a nice red sweater at Zara that “survived” even last year’s sale so I bought it for only 4 euros my dear Belgrade. I told myself, “Marko, you need to buy this red sweater just to feel happiness!” So that was my last words, before I heard famous beep which means that my credit card is accepted and I had enough money to buy this amazing sweater.
Are you ready for the guests my dear Belgrade? I am writing to you this letter from the metro, I have to drive precisely 32 stations to the airport and here I come to see you. As always, you wonder what I will wear and I will give you a little hint, but do not tell anyone, give me your word that nobody will know my little fashion secret! All right, here it is!
