Golija Mountain





This weekend I went to the beautiful Golija Mountain in southwestern Serbia. Unfortunately I didn't have my usual camera with me, for reasons I won't admit bore you with, just a small point-and-shoot. :(
In this top picture you can see a GIANT ANTHILL which is built entirely from pine needles. These ants secrete a kind of acidic substance which is said to have healing properties especially when inhaled (for the treatment of asthma, etc). I was encouraged to press both of my hands onto a swarm of ants (seriously!) and can I just say, those suckers sting! But they say they don't bite, it's merely that healing acid I felt. Hm...



Views. VIEWS! Here's a picture out of the front of our bus when we were descending the mountain earlier today.

More pics to come...

Super interesting! Never had heard about these anthills. And at first glance, it looks like you're looking over a pilot's shoulder, not a bus driver's!!
