Serbia: Symbols of the 1990s (2)

Viktor of Belgrade Blog posts part 2 of the series about the 1990s in Serbia: “Walking down some streets all you could hear was buzzing and see money switch hands, dinars for deutch marks, deutch marks for dinars, depending on peoples needs. Why buzzing, you may ask yourself. Well, Dileri used Serbian word ‘devize’ meaning ‘foreign currency’ to let people know they are in bussiness. ‘Devize, devize’ soon turned into ‘d’vizzze, d’vizzze,’ than to ‘vizzze, vizzze,’ only to become simple ‘vzzz’ in the end.”
