#SUPPORT SERBIA AND BOSNIA

BDW joins the appeal of the most famous Serb – Novak Djokovic. Djokovic called for aid from the international community and is trying to do everything he can to get the word out. “We need help. This rain that is constantly falling for four days already is going to stop eventually and the rivers, the flood is going to back up. After that there’s a period of definitely a minimum of several months of recovery. People are without homes. We need as much help in any kind of way as possible from the world.”

The best Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic has criticized the BBC, CNN and other foreign media because, as he said, they are not covering flooding in Serbia sufficiently.
“There is a flood of biblical proportions. That’s why I feel the need to point it out wherever and whenever possible, because major international media such as CNN and BBC are under-reporting of what is happening in Serbia and Bosnia. This is one of the worst floods ever seen, many cities were evacuated, half of the country may not have electricity. It has to be shown to the world, we need help,” said Djokovic.

Running in the morning through the city (down what the germans call a fussgangerzone) and being amazed by all the grand empty old buildings that reminded me of my Berlin beginnings. Grafitti on buildings. Lovely broken walls with acne'd facades from decades of reverse engineering. Discovering that all the ships on the river were party boats and open till the morning. Sweating so much in one of the clubs, my phone got messed up. Losing phone in said club. Visiting belgrade police station to report a then stolen phone to a twenty-something cop with a doctor's lab coat, listening to Rammstein (loudly) while hacking out my report on a pre-electric typewriter that looked (and sounded) as if it was from some era before typewriters were invented.   Thinking of Naked Lunch. Thinking of Die-Hard. Listening to architects talk about porous facades. Thinking of old smart bombs. Imagining the flash and crunch of several floors of reinforced concrete collapsing in on themselves. Wondering why I'm the only interactive guy here. Why are there so many beautiful women in Belgrade? Why are there so many beautiful women in Belgrade?!
