Low profile

Prizren is the most beautiful city in Kosovo. Tourism has a future here.
Yesterday the Serbs told me about the churches that were burnt in Prizren during the riots of March 17, 2004.
Today the Albanians told me that the churches are not yet rebuilt because the Serbian Orthodox Church has not given permission for the reconstruction of the churches.
Fact is that many churches and monasteries are protected by KFOR troops And me? When I speak with Albanians I’m an Albanian. When I speak with Serbs I’m a Serb.
This is what people call: low profile.
When my mother calls me I’m a Jew. That isn’t exactly low profile, but it keeps the conversation with my mother flowing.
