The third day at the Belgrade office. See also day one and day two.

Some office photos: yes, there are standing-, pool- and table football tables, just as we have in Amsterdam. Dinner at the lovely Majstor i Margarita restaurant (*), adventurous cocktails at the well-hidden Beogradski Koktel Klub, and some street photos, including the second of two pieces of street art advertising veganism I saw tonight.

(*) The Majstor i Margarita restaurant is probably named after “one of the best novels of the 20th century”

From Wikipedia:

The Master and Margarita (Russian: Мастер и Маргарита) is a novel by Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov, written in the Soviet Union between 1928 and 1940 during Stalin’s regime. A censored version was published in Moscow magazine in 1966–1967, after the writer’s death. The manuscript was not published as a book until 1967, and then first in Paris. A samizdat version circulated that included parts cut out by official censors, and these were incorporated in a 1969 version published in Frankfurt. The novel has since been published in several languages and editions.

The story concerns a visit by the devil to the officially atheistic Soviet Union. The Master and Margarita combines supernatural element with satirical dark comedy and Christian philosophy, defying a singular genre. Many critics consider it to be one of the best novels of the 20th century, as well as the foremost of Soviet satires.
