A change of place/pace

So i have arrived in Belegrad, which means i should probably change the name of my blog at this point sinc ei am no longer in croatia but serbia. I am staying in a nice tiny flat right outside the city. My room is pretty neat and is lofted in the apartment...The mother here has a daughter, 17, who is doing an exchange program in the US. She is in highschool in Des Moins for the year and is loving it, which is why my host mom here wanted to host an american. She is very welcoming, but i think it will take getting used to here, even though it is only for two weeks. The city is much bigger and very different than zagreb. I hear it is more exiciting on a lot of levels but as seen more wear and tear. It sort of becomes clear very quickly that zagreb is a richer city as far as money goes. However, belegrade has amazing streets, hills, shops, and a very bustling atmosphere. We'll see what I think after a few days. Our classes here are being held at a university which is one of the first private university in belegrade. The building is very new inside and pretty hip.
So not too much to say now, except it was quite the exciting morning trying to catch our bus here... more to come later.
Miss you all!
