Buskers and Bazaars

The next day, I began my explorations anew and, fortified by more of the coffee that is just as good as the excellent standard to which I have become accustomed to in the Balkans, set off for the bazaar. The bazaar seemed to sell the usual vegetables, watches and wallets typical of similar markets and it was a nice place to stroll. I then went to see the iconic NEWBORN sign which is a large set of letters spelling this word and is repainted each year on Kosovo’s Independence Day. This year the letters were painted by the city’s children but the E was painted black to symbolise the people’s disappointment in the local economy.
