Every day life in Sremska Mitrovica

I thought it would be interesting for you to see how the majority of people live here in Serbia.  The number of apartment buildings is unbelievable.  There is no wasted space...there may be stores on the bottom but you can be sure that above the stores will be apartments.  Many of the apartments have a balcony and this balcony serves as their patio, back yard, garden, and clothes line.

There are stores around the bottom of this building
 This is a huge complex of apartment buildings
We look into the backyards of these buildings..Apartments above.

Notice the wash hanging...a very common site

This is our apartment...I'm standing on our balcony
Really it is the fourth floor.
That is our car parked in front.

There are also old old houses and some very nice new homes.  Just a couple pictures showing nicer homes.
Roads here are narrow and houses are close together.  How they gate and fence their area seems to be important to them.  We all have areas that mean status to us, right!  And life goes on in our Serbian journey.
