Jasmina Update

Jasmina is staying in Serbia. She moved back at the end of June as her Visa was about to expire and the original plan was for her to come back sometime in August. I was going to go over there and bring her home :p

But she's realised how much she missed the warmth of old friends, the culture and her family and after lots of thinking and talking has decided to try and make ago of things in Belgrade. She's going to start university there in October and is starting to look for part-time work tomorrow.

It was a really hard decision and one which is painful in some ways, but the right one to take at present. University is so much cheaper in Serbia than it is over here and she'll be able to live without so many money worries. Britain, and London especially, is very expensive to live in.

She says hello to those who know her btw and hopefully won't be a complete stranger. I'll almost certainly be heading over to Serbia in September now (August is a complete write-off due to conventions and other commitments) and personally can;t wait to catch up with the young lady again.

She had become one of my closest and dearest friends and it is going to hurt that she isn't here anymore. But the joys of modern life means that with MSN, Skype, email, mobile phones, air travel, etc people are never really all that far away.

I'm sure she'll be fine and have a great time to boot.

Indeed a hard decision, but knowing Belgrade and its people it is hard not to agree with some of the reasons... my time living there was amazing, and lead to convincing Jessy to come over to London which in itself was great.
Might be going there in September with V for my godson's brother's chistening... and to catch up with Jessy.
We shall now get her to come over as soon as she has holidays there, and those they do have many ....
From all the people I miss from there I learned that Belgrade is just next door... cheap and quick to get to.

That's sad news. I know you are very fond of her. I hope it all works out well for both of you.
