Yeah, so basically, I'm going over to the USA for a trip with my Politics class. I'll visit D.C. and NYC, so I won't be here for a week. I'll tell y'all about it when I get back.

Gotta give you credit, Tsar. Most people state they are "going" on campaign. You, on the other hand, being the Tsar, are "foing" on campaign. ;)

Seems like this is going to become true in the UK if you're taking pictures of police or some shit.

It's illegal to take photos of certain objects in Serbia, military installations, power plants etc., but also of US embassy. Don't know what the big deal is though.

It's illegal to take pictures of the US embassy in any country because of security concerns (both real and imagined).

is it the

Probably both. There are people who would like to blow up a US embassy to make some sort of political point, and simply saying "no photography" isn't likely to deter them. Might hinder some a bit, but in the end, it doesn't require a camera to commit some sort of act of crime and/or terrorism.

I'm back (ish). I got back from the States on Monday, but my dad broke my computer while I was away. So I have been reduced to using my Wii to see you guys; which isn't great. It's fine for browsing but is a huge hassle for typing. I'll tell you about it when the power supplly I ordered gets in.

Serbia uses Euros?

Well, no and yes. Prices are in Dinars, the national currency, but Euros are user as reference, since Din fluctuates. It also depends on the goods traded - for instance IT stuff is priced in Euros, since trade margins are so low, currency fluctuations might cancel sellers profit.

Hm. Heheh, Dinars. Sounds like a Turkish word to me; a bit ironic for a country such as Serbia, hm?

djura

We have plenty Turkish words - being occupied by Ottoman Empire for 500 years will do that to a language and pretty much everything else. Dinars, as far as I know, isn't one of them.

Yep, I'm off again, for 10 Days to Bavaria for a German exchange. Considering I'm going to a Catholic All Girls school in Bavaria, it may be a while before I return.

Cya.

german students for?

(aside, Why are there Girl Schools, but not Boy Schools? is it that Boys just can't be taught?)
