Schlepp travels: Episode 3

Whenever possible, the Schlepps like to hit the road with their friend, the Monkey. In these photos from 2002 and 2003, a few of the Schlepps visit unique spots in Belgium, Turkey, the United States, and what was then Yugoslavia (now Serbia).

Belka in Belgrade, Serbia (then Yugoslavia)
Belka accompanied the Monkey to Belgrade, Yugoslavia (now Serbia) in July 2002. Here she rests on a wall in the Kalemegdan Park. Behind her is the ivy-covered belfry of the Ruzica Church, an 18th Century gunpowder storehouse that was converted to a chapel when the Serbs retook Belgrade from the Ottomans in 1867.
