Preconceived ideas about this being living in Western Europe. This is the former Yugoslavia, NOT France or Germany. - Dec 25, 2017
Expectations of community. - Sep 26, 2017
Extra furniture. Houses are small and the General Services Office (GSO) will not take back furniture from your home. - May 26, 2016
Respect for rules of the road. Aggressive driving and parking anywhere you wish are norms. - Aug 19, 2014
Nothing but your need for a smoke-free restaurant (smoking is the national pastime). - Nov 26, 2012

ideas about non-smoking restaurants/bars. - May 31, 2011
religious stereotypes and intolerance. This is a welcoming and vibrant city. - May 18, 2010
