It was one year ago today that Belgrade was featured in the New York Times in a major feature.
Everyone in Belgrade who found out about it was delighted as it seemed the final proof that things were finally getting much better.
One year on some of the excitement has died down. Political progress has been slow, the Summer clubbing season was dire thanks to random weather and there is just a touch of pessimism in the air.
I hope the process of improvement continues and we get our mojo back in Belgrade this winter.
