I’ve visited Pristina, Kosovo’s capital city, probably dozens of times now. But I tend to follow the same path through the city, sticking to streets and places I know.
I mentioned to a friend who lives in Pristina that I wanted to explore the city a bit more. She offered to take me on walk up through a part of the city I’d never seen.
We climbed a steep hill and reached a neighborhood filled with beautiful homes.
We ended up at a large cemetery.
Many of the tombstones displayed pictures of the deceased.
Remember last week, when I posted about cages around graves?
We saw a few fresh graves. I think “burying” is a loose term in this instance. It looks more like, “Here’s a body. We put some dirt on top of it.”
We walked further.
Next, we came to a small park at the very top of the city.
When we came down from the hill, we visited the Newborn sign (which I posted about last week). Here’s what the new design looks like, in person.
None of the letters in “Newborn” really corresponds with my name, so I decided to take a picture with the “B.” Because why not?
