Independence Days


 May 21st and 22nd are Montenegro's Independence Days. I'm not sure why it lasts two days. The 21st is generally a day when people get together with their friends and have a Barbeque.
 We got together with a large group of friends, and friends of friends. We even brought some friends from America who were visiting us. Our language teacher and her son were there.
 Here is our group just before we eat. The food was awesome, by the way.
 Ruth is playing in a gravel pile with some other children.
Esther taking a walk with one of our very good friends.
On the 22nd we took a walk through the city with our visitors. We saw posters for the upcoming National Election.
And various groups of cars driving by waving the Montenegrin flag (and sometimes a politician's flag as well). You knew they were coming because they had horns blaring.
Montenegro has been independant from Serbia for 8 years now. I'm guessing the celebration in 2 years will really be something.
