" A mind is like a parachute,
It only functions when it's opened."
James Dewar
What young visitors first notice here is widespread hedonism. The locals know how to enjoy life and never miss an opportunity to make a party. So the average Serb is seen as laid-back, never in a hurry and careless about money. But when the same man moves to Germany in pursuit of work, he becomes at once a highly appreciated gastarbeiter. Friendliness, kindness and warmth are the characteristics often associated with us by foreign visitors. Being stubborn and close-minded is the common stereotype we have about ourselves.
