Dusk is drawing near. As people clamber
on the walls for views out over the rivers, twilight begins to fall in
As the evening sun goes down, the
hustle and bustle seeps away as well. The cafes still do a lively business
and people are still exploring and having fun, but the pace of life dials
back a notch or two. Many gather at the Victor statue to relax,
drink a beer, and text each other on their phones.
This landmark is well regarded as a totem
of the city - a naked man (turned discreetly towards the river) holding
a sword in one hand and a bird in the other.
The sun dips behind Darth Vader's house,
as Breck and Alea call it, in New Belgrade on the far side of the Sava
And a brilliant sunset lights up the sky
over the city
As the lights of the fortress come up,
couples make their way to the terrace to enjoy a few minutes of quiet.
And over all, the sentinel of the city watches and waits...
