***Serbia
300px-Flag_of_Montenegro_svg2.jpgSerbia

Next will be Serbia, I came here over the border between Serbia and Montenegro.
Then Montenegro is already independed from Serbia, so there are surely border between Motenegro then already, but we are not checked our passport specially on the border then.

The name of the train is "Bar-Train" and this is almost for local ppl there.
So in my conpartment, there are old women who looks really local ppl and cannot speak Eng, but can understand Russian^^ 
And after for a while, there also comes some young guys seems to be after the club activity. And they are surprised to see Asian girl here, so they made a lot of noize and staired at me a lot.
The noise kept on for a long then, so finally I felt upseted for that and afraid to make some trouble.....cos already it gets dark because of the being late of the train and they are guys and many... >_< So for in case, I asked where I can make phonecall then in Russian, but for them that was surprising my speaking Russian, and finally one guy gently told me the way to make a phonecall in great English.....and I finally understand they're good guy.

And after that, I talked a lot with old womens in the same conpertment and also with the Serbian girl who tried to help me when I was in mess to look for phonebox >_<;
The girl's name is Milica and she is studying in the medical college of Beograd. And she said her boyfriend is waitin' for her at Beograd station so then also she showed me her boyfrined later on the Beograd station^^
Btw in Beograd station, there are the ruin of NATO. And it is almost broken by the bomb during the war 1990's, but it is never broken and still left there.
And they told me it is to leave and show the scar of the war.....when our topic is goin' to that, Milica suddenly cry by remenbering her memory during the war.....it was really difficult, I thought.

***Montenegro
300px-Flag_of_Montenegro_svg.jpg Montenegro

Montenegro, I went to Kotor and Podgorica. When I was there, just after being independent from Serbia. And it is really indersting that the currency was Euro, Montenegro hasn't join the EU thoungh....but they hope to join EU, so they try to catch up only the currency before joining, I suppose^^That was interesting!

*Kotor*
P1010955.jpg P1010953.jpg
Kotor. Small city with castle wall and it is regarded as national heritage, I was there from the Dubrovnik by bus^^
This town is quite small and I asked for some place to stay in the tourist center, but they said "Every hotel is closed cos it is not the season to take a tour....so if you hope to stay here, you should stay the house of that old man behind you.".....I turened behind, there is one old man and he said me "You can stay my house".

This man uses his house as guesthouse and asked me a lot to stay his house, again and again.
Then there was another Japanese girl, who met first on the bus and got togather, so finally I decided to stay his house with that Japanese girl, Akiko-chan^^

*Our dinner*
P1010984.jpg
We bought our staffs for the dinner in the small supermarket nearby, and we cooked our dinner by ourselves. The wife of the guesthouse kindly accept to our using kitchen and the daughter kindly also gave us some bread for our dinner....awww thanx a lot!!!!
After talking a lot with the family then, the wife showed us their baby, named Anastasia....soooo cute!!!
P1010985.jpg

And at last we slept early after walking a lot in the castle wall in Kotor. Me and Akiko-chan got to be great friend by talking a lot then through the night^^ I think the girl who travel alone such a countries, like not to be arranged for tourists, are all really interesting to talk!!

*Bus station*
P1010952.jpg
We left for Podgorica by breaking bus, Podgorica is the capital of the Montenegro. And my Russian was used a lot cos the sign in bus station is almost all written in Cyrillic alphabet...Russian.

*Podgorica*
P1020005.jpg P1020011.jpg
Me and Akiko-chan said goodbye there to go to each distination, me is to Beograd, Akiko-chan is to Sarajebo. And I went to the train station to get on the Bar train (Connected from Montenegro and Serbia), this is used normally for citizens, not for tourist^^ Local train!

Next will be Serbia!

***Bosnia and Herzegovina
bosnia.gif Bosnia and Herzegovina 

Bosnia, went there from Zagreb in Croatia by bus, and saw Sarajebo & Mostar, and finally go back to Croatia again, to Duvrobnik^^ Actually I can go there only by bus....!!!

Actually this country was really hard for me to be long.....the atmosphere was still tense and heavy, it is much different from Croatia...!!!

*Bosnian graves*
P1010770.jpg
*Homes with gunhall...* 
P1010766.jpg P1010769.jpg
I saw many graves and ruins by the domestic war on the way to the Sarajebo from inside of the bus....the scenary indicated me a lot how hard the war was....it was really sad for me.
The photo above is the Bosnian graves, there are many grave posts made by wood painted white...and the bodies are not burned, just burial in the ground....
The photos below are the homes with gunhalls, and they are seen in the near city center......how misery it was....

*Sarajebo*
P1010773.jpg
And in Sarajebo, I hav a trouble with the owner woman of the hostel.
At first she looked really good and kind, but once she got to know I hav not so much money and I would pay only a little, she changed her face suddenly scary and "You have to pay more, if you want to return your passport from me!!!" cos she had my passport to confirm my id.
For me, I don't wanna pay easily, so I pretend to cry and tried to get excuse from her, but it had no meanings in front of her scary face, and she said "CAN YOU UNDERSTAND ENGLISH---???? ARE YOU ALL RIGHT---??You just have to pay money to me!!!" again and again and forced me to pay money.....
OMG she is too strong enough to stand on the war......

At last, I decided to not to stay that hostel where I had a trouble (but they finally also forced me to pay the extra fee for the cancelation) and decided to stay Yasna's house.
Yasna is Bosnian woman and her house is used as a small guesthouse^^ her house is one of the popular guesthouse in Bosnia among the backpacker.
Sometimes she takes tourists to the sightseeing and that's good, but I othen heard she is famous for "Addicting Japanese guys"....so when Japanese guy stayed her house, sometimes she f*ck them....omg! But I don't know it's true or not, cos just it is a rumor.
But when I stayed her house, she talked a lot about Japanese guys all time....and she had one guy's copy of his passport id, who suppose to be her favorite.....!!
And I told her about the privious hostel and the owner woman's scary behaviour to me, Yasna took me to the city tourist center and helped me by telling that scary situation to the officer in the tourist center....Yasna had many friends and relationship...I thought.

*Yasuna*
P1010762.jpg
The photo of Yasuna, maybe that is rare cos Yasuna seldom accept to be taken photos.

*Mostar*
P1010814.jpg P1010842.jpg
Also I went to Mostar.
In Mostar, people and the race are completely separated the river named Neretova, and there were misery domestic war, now Mostar is regarded as a national heritage.

*Don't forget*
P1010832.jpg

In Mostar, I stayed one room of the flat, it was of Yasna's friend in Mostar. But this room has no curtain and there was a big window and furthermore, this room was settled first floor......that means it is quite easy to see inside from the outside and also enter the room only you brake the glass of the big window and......so at night I felt scary indeed.....!!!
And at first I went out from the flat, one crazy guy who had no right foot suddenly run to me with screaming something crazy.....it was really scary for me >_<
In Mostar, I went to sightseeing aroung the bridge and had a cake^^Sometimes people cannot understand English, so I have to use Russian instead....!!

*Bosnian Bread*
P1010853.jpg
The bread the most common in Bosnia, a little oily....
And I bought a CD by Bosnian famous singer. I bought that in small CD shop and great shopper women kindly helped me a lot to choose best CD to buy. I bought a CD which has a song named "Da Zna" like that sang by the woman from Kosobo, and it was soooo good!

*Bosnian cake and Bus station*
P1010775.jpg P1010864.jpg
I bought a cake and told that I wanna take it away, they wrapped that in aluminium foil. And I ate that next morning before leaving for Croatia, but it tasted like.......the toilet in the school....means too bad >_< So I felt sick in the bus by that, unfortunately.....OMG;;

Next will be Montenegro.

***Croatia
croatia.gif Croatia

Croatia, I went there from Hugary and at first I went to Zagreb.
In Zagreb, I really thought the town was really clean, maybe more than Japan!!

*Nacionalni Park Plitvicka Jezera*
P1010631.jpg P1010664.jpg P1010695.jpg
Also I went to Plitvica, I already saw this beautiful scenary on my calendar sold in Japan, so I was happy to see them in live....!!!
If you think this is not so beautiful, maybe just because of my poor skill to take photos...omg >_<

In Zagreb, I got friend with HongKonese girl, who was with American guys.
We were togather on the bus from Plitvica to Zagreb and had dinner togather^-^
We kept in touch still now and I show her around in Japan, when she came to Japan X33
DSC08097.jpg

And after Zagreb, I went to Bosnia, but this will be next article I write.

*Dubrovnik*
P1010901.jpg P1010923.jpg
And I went back again to Croatia, to Dubrovnik so called "the city sea can be seen".
This place is the model of the Ghibli movie "Kiki's delivery service", by Hayao Miyazaki.
The scenary was really beautiful and awesome "Resort place" I thought.
Every hotel is really clean and every place were arranged well for tourists.
Price were higher than around here and toooo many tourist there were.

P1010907.jpg
But when I went to the pub with American and Australian guys in the night in Dubrovnik, I met crazy guys who did drugs......they robbed our alchols and broke the bottle, and the broken glass peace were scattered...omg;;
And they try to threaten us by saying something....I thought this is the dark side of here....maybe >_<

Next will be Bosnia.

Mar,2007
***Hungary
hungary.gif Hungary

I went to Hungary from Lvov in Ukrine by night train.
The train was not so clean and the compartment and bed is halfly broken;; In conpartment, I was with a grandmother and her son then.
That compartment was sooo dark already in noon, just because of not so many light there was, so I slept ealier. And I felt really glad, cos that granma picked my blanket up when the blanket was dropped during my sleep....!!

And when it got dark, the granma and her son was already gone, got off and I was finally to be alone in the conpartment.
When crossing the border, police came to me and took my passport.....I felt upset a little cos I heared here sometimes the police asked me to pay much more money as usual for their bribe;;
Furthermore, I couldn't sleep just because my passport was gone.....and suddenly I saw someone who was out of the window grabbing the window frame and after seeing that, I got to be bound hand and foot suddenly....and a big shadow, looked big guy, came toward to me with saying something.....that looked like a ghost ;A; It was really scary waaaaaaaaahhhhh cos I was alone!!!! ;A; I believe it is dream or illusion or something like that not the ghost.....!!!

*Budapest*
P1010589.jpg P1010576.jpg

By that, I couldn't sleep well and I felt bad on my stmach because of my eating cheese that bought in Russia.
In Budapest, it snowed then....but I went to the palace, that is one of popular sightseeing spot^^
But it was tough cos the cable car directly from city to the palace was stopped....!!!
*Cable car*
P1010583.jpg 

Sometimes here, people cannot accept English, but accept Russian, it was really surprising for me^^
But totally really confortable city to stay, I think^^

P1010591.jpg
The bread looked really tasty!!

I couldn't be here so long, so got on the train to Croatia and stayed not so long here, unfortunately^^
