Supposely now I know serbian

This last Wednesday was the “graduation” of the Serbian course on Avala for the project “Svet u Srbiji” (The world in Serbia). We had to sing, dance and some others had to recite some personal redaction. At the end it wasn’t as bad as I thought.

I woke up early to take a shower and then my friend Suhejl came to my room to do the makeup and the hair. Hel told me what to wear and everything. I can’t believe how good he is at that stuff; I really liked how I looked.

We were in the middle of the last practice when the guest started to arrive so, we had to stop and wait till everyone was on their sit. I had to dance a song called “Moja čokolada” (My chocolate) and I was dying! I’m shy, and I simply cannot go in front of people doing those things, I felt like an idiot. Happily it ended fast.

We continued with the presentation when they put the video of a friend who abandoned the program. It was a really sad video, I looked at the audience and there were a lot of people crying.

At some point there was the turn of this guy from Congo who made a hip-hop song, and he really surprised the audience. It’s a very simple song about the life in Avala. I’ll write the lyric, because even if it’s very simple, I find very creative to write a song in Serbian after 3 months of studying it.

Svakog dana jedemo krompir (Every day we eat potatos)
Svakog dana idemo na Banjicu (Every day we go to Banjica –basically it’s where civilizations starts)
Svakog dana imamo čas (Every day we have classes)
Pola pet, mi smo umorni (4:30 we are tired)

At the end we danced kolo, which is a very simple Serbian dance, it was very very fun, it’s basically the only thing I can dance haha

The event finished when they gave us our diplomas. And then there were a lot of pictures, a cocktail in the restaurant, and a party at night… I didn’t go since I was tiiiired.

I Love Being a Lolita in Serbia

Today I want to write about the reasons for which I like to be a Lolita in Serbia. I cannot say I dress very often, since I used to have classes everyday during all day, and now that I have more time, I’m traveling (And traveling with Lolita clothes is incredibly uncomfortable) or I do nothing (I’m lazy like that haha), but if I have the chance, I take my frills and go outside.

Take into account that I’m going to compare how I live Lolita here and how I lived it in Guadalajara so, this is only my point of view.

Jagodina or, where are my strawberries?!

Last Saturday I was planning of going to one city in Serbia, but at the end I changed my destination to Jagodina, a small city 3 hours away from Belgrade. The reason is that I gave this trip as a birthday present to my friend Asni and she wanted to go there, Why? Because she looooves strawberries, which in Serbian are called Jagode, and only because of the name she wanted to go. At the end, well, I didn’t see any strawberry hahaha 

We had to catch the train of 7:50am, it was 7:42 and we were still on the bus! We had to run to the train station and buy the tickets fast! The train was full and we had to go in a different cabinet. I slept all the way, since we had to wake up at 5:30am to be ready.
