Saluti da Sar Planina

Kosovo is the last Balkan state whose citizens are not allowed to travel freely into the European Union. What effect does this constraint have on a lonely berry-picker who lives in an isolated village in the desolate Sar Mountains in Kosovo? In stilted Italian, he recalls his happy stay in Italy before he was repatriated. He has a few regrets, but looks wryly at his situation as he hopes for a future in Europe. The EU is struggling to cope with the worst economic crisis in its history. Anti-European sentiments are gaining ground, but there is someone in Kosovo who still believes strongly in a united Europe.
