Viva Tito!

More good stuff from Anna who's made it to Sarajevo. She and her family got a walking tour of the city from a pair of friendly college students who've got mad love for Tito:

They both said that Bosnia was living proof that socialism works, because the average standard of living was apparently way better in the former Yugoslavia. If econ students who dress in trendy ripoffs of luxury brands thought that, I'm guessing nostalgia for communism runs pretty deep in the Balkans.

I spent quite a few vacations in the former Yugoslavia as a kid and it was a surprisingly well-off place. Of course this was Slovenia and Croatia but even Belgrade was a nice affluent city according to my memories from the late 80s. I did my TOEFL there at the American embassy :)
