The weather made it impossible to drive along the coast. So yesterday, we drove to Belgrade. The plan was to spend a night or two in Belgrade and then drive south to Greece. We had no idea where to stay when we got to Belgrade so we stopped some students on the street to ask. They told us that we could stay with them in their dorm and that sounded like a great idea - definitely cheaper than any other place we could find. Jeannine and Pat stayed in one room, Judy and Dede in other squished together in twin beds, sleeping head to toe. Our car is the only car in the parking lot and there has been a lot of conversation about the "automovil" and the "passaportes"
