A river runs through it.

I have always loved rivers, lakes, seas, oceans.

The feeling that the water flowing by somehow connects me to every other part of the globe.

The call of faraway ports.

New worlds to discover.

On belgradestreets there are two rivers, the Sava and the Danube

Life on belgradestreets revolves around its rivers.

In Summer, the parties on the splavs last all night long.

In Winter, the night can last all day when the rivers freeze and the oil runs dry.

All of which reminds me of these words which sustained me through many nights of revision in my days at college….

“That sends me down to the river
Though I know the river is dry
That sends me down to the river tonight
Down to the river
My baby and I
Oh, down to the river we ride . . .”

(Bruce Springsteen: The River)
