As promised photos from exhibition "Decorations in the legacies of the Historical Archives of Belgrade" ("Одликовања из легата Историјског архива Београда").
Really amazing decorations, most of them I saw for the first time in person. Taking photos is allowed, staff is very pleasant, I was even offered magnifying glass to look at the orders more carefully. You also get a free leaflet and as I already mentioned complete illustrated catalog in PDF can be downloaded for free (Just in case someone missed it I posted it here: http://gmic.co.uk/topic/57613-decorations-from-the-collections-of-the-serbian-museums/?page=11#comment-626092 ).

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
