I’m very pleased to post this modest plug for my good friend Neil Howie, who amongst many other things is the Chairman of the British Society of Serbia.

Neil, and his colleagues, look forward to meeting you tomorrow at 6:00pm at the Helga Bar, Gospodar Jevremova 50, Dorcol, Belgrade.

This post is not about me, well not really, it’s about a man called Zoran Živković.

And it’s also, indirectly, about a country, a city, a people, and a whole bloody lot more.

But mostly, it’s about him.
