Kosovo Update with Pics

Peja, Kosovo

I decided to stay in Peja overnight and take a morning bus to Podgorica, Montenegro where I’ll connect going on to Kotor. Here are a few pics from Kosovo:

That’s right, welcome to Bill Clinton Blvd.

Prizren’s picturesque old city.

Gutted orthodox church on the hills above Prizren.

I just love this.

A damn fine street name in Peje.
