They are playing Baseball in Split
The dressing room of Nada Split smells like heroic wins, crushing defeats and sweaty textiles. Baseball bats, gloves and beer bottles are lying around. A week ago the team lost its national final against their archrival Olimpija Karlovac. It is no time for training now for Split’s local baseball team but time for grief.

The White-Trousered Biker
At the edge of the town Budva in Montenegro Krsto Niklanovic is waiting. Always. For everyone. Hoisted several metres up in the air, his image is looking down on everyone entering the town. He is sitting on his Harley, his long grey hair flowing out from underneath his helmet. With this poster Krsto is advertising his Beer & Bike Club. But it is only in the evening when he is a biker. During the day he is a successful business man.
When day turns to night in Shkodra the stray dogs come out and fight bitterly over each thigh bone and cow’s jaw they can find in the leftovers of local butchers. It is a battle for survival that thousands of stray dogs have to fight every single day in Albania.
