Caffe Tito

Out by the national historical museum is the Caffe Tito, a sort of beer garden themed around Yugoslavia's post-WWII dictator. We saw things like this, about Mao, in Beijing and in Chunking, in 2008 (maybe in was a chain?). They seemed like good clean nostalgic fun, and the Tito Cafe seemed similar. Though in the eastern bloc, Tito's Yugoslavia was no puppet of Moscow. Tito had ideas of creating a third bloc and was courted by all the world's leaders. We had a drink there and watched a bit more of the World Cup. Our visit to Sarajevo and Bosnia-Hertzegovina was over.

UN relief to Sarajevo during the siege included the inevitable
canned "meat," to which this monument pays "homage"
