Today, I traveled towards Kosovo’s northern bank. I found again a bridge, which was still stoically standing in favor of the division of the city to the north and south. The entrance of the famous bridge from the south to the north, turned to be a car park for civilian and military vehicles. Life developed normally in the south while in the north I could still feel the ‘cold’ feeling of 90s. 


As trying to step in the north, crossing through the main bridge two Serbian fellows came along the gravel barricade in deliberate attack. Seems like it was not their best day, they were not happy about the fact that a foreign photographer was trying to shot images of the ‘dark northern bank’ which is as reported by now in the hands of criminal gangs, which deal with the smuggling of arms, drugs, motor oils and trafficking in human beings. While we are all witnesses to the reported criminal activity, it is operated in the presence of international forces (NATO/KFOR) that are believed to be in Kosovo in order to preserve the security and law enforcement for all.

But, there is always a BUTT!
