Typical Srem countryside (between Fruska Gore and Sava river)
The hills in the haze are Fruska Gore (lots of monasteries)
Just past the toll point for Sabac
On the road to Sabac
I lost count of the number of fresh produce sellers between the junction and Sabac
Area has lots of area for produce.  In August this will be full of cornfields
Sabac is a city of approx 120,000 people
A view from the road bridge upstream
And one downstream
The sign says it all
Just before you get to the jamboree site, you have to cross a canal
Sabac-0012
Sabac-0013
Sabac-0014
The main hall is big with a number of tables and chairs that we can use.  They will also provide a fridge, gas ring and a tv.
The Kimdergarten has 44 beds
7 bedrooms with 6 beds each (3x bunk bed)
And a single room with 2 beds
There are also toilets and showers
The kindergarten is set in a nice park
there is an overflow building that I believe has a further 11 beds
Whilst we are in Sabac, there will be a regional Jamboree (Fri-Sun dates unknown) that will be in the grounds.
Near to the kindergarten is the building that will house the 2011 Jamboree HQ
Next to the site is a school which will be used to support the 2011 Jamboree as a press centre and Internet cafe
The school has a couple of playing fields/basketball courts
About 1km from the site is a local bar which will be used in 2011 as a function area/Staff bar
Sabac-0029
Although the site is surrounded by small shops, most of these appear to be little more than soft drink sellers and pekara ( bakers).  There are a couple of big supermarkets and there are a couple of minimarts less than 500m from the kindergarten.
There is also a private supermarket a couple of doors down that has an attached BBQ and the owner (ex Scout) has offered to cook meat for us and deliver it to site (Sort of a Serbian takeaway)

There is also a small function room/kids play area above the supermarket
The first restaurant  I was taken to was in what I could only describe as an industrial park.
As well as the garden, it has a covered patio area which can accommodate 50-60 people
and an inside room of a similar size.   Tables can be configured as we want (ie a big table or lots of smaller tables)
The second restaurant was further away from the site
This is a much bigger restaurant with 2 rooms that could accommodate 100+
It is also much more scenic as it is on the banks of the Sava next to the railway bridge
of interest was the fact that the road was actually a brick road rather than tarmac
The third restaurant visited was in Majur (town that Tijana and Teodora come from)  it is about 4km from the kindergarten using back roads
The restaurant is called Cardak (barn) and was where Chris and I had a meal when we visited last year
Inside is a typical ethno house
The owners took us on a tour to see the modern and traditional kitchens
Seating area is a number of small tables but it can easily accommodate 60
We then went to Sabac bus station
where I was able to take photos of all the time-tables (inter city and local)
I stayed in a different hotel from the last time.  Rooms were ok but didn't spend much time in them as after the tour, Teodora and I went to Tijana's appartment in Sabac and then in the evening we visited another restoran.  This is not big enough to take all of the EB but would be a pleasant venue for a support team evening meal as they cook the food in the corner of the room.
