Life, Culture and Travels from the perspective of a Cuban

I have put together a new list to show all the favourites I have found in Belgrade City. Yum yum Njam Njam. 🙂 1-) Iced Coffee This summer drink took over Belgrade and I am now addicted to it. The ingredients in this area are coffee (Nescafe or espresso), milk, ice cream, whipped cream and […]
