Tesla, Nova Iskra & Karađorđeva šnicla

Sometimes you bite off a little more than you can chew. The lecture with my personal reflections about Swedish inventors and design needed more preparations than I had planned for, but when you ”Keep calm & carry on”, most things work out in the end.

Great working environment for focused authors and lecturers alike.

Finally, there was time for some tourist stuff.

My friend Petter was a deerhunter during our stay, stalking the local famous beer Jelen (’deer’). Here in Tašmajdan park.

Visiting the Tesla Museum outside the guided tour turned out to be a very static experience. Here a sleeping Egg of Columbus.

The reception at the designers’ meeting point Nova Iskra was – like most Serbian receptions – warm, engaged and chatty.

Not surprisingly, our jolly company ended at a restaurant, where we had some great—tada!—conversation.

This night I had my second Karađorđeva šnicla. A small one, this time.
