The train has just pulled out of Belgrade, Serbia on the 11+ hour night
journey to Bar, Montenegro. I am pretty certain that by the time we arrive I
will have lost at least five pound through sweat. I am sharing a three-bed
compartment with two Serbian babushkas and have had the misfortune to be
assigned the top bunk. It is sweltering up here which is unfortunate because
the only relief from the Serbian heat comes in the evening when temperatures
drop from the mid to upper 90s (It’s even reached over 100 once or twice during
my visit) to the low 70s.
