No, it was the middle of the day, so the bar owner wasn't in.

Neda says that when she meets Serbians in Canada, they always say, "ah, but we're basically the same people" in a conciliatory tone. Myself, I've met a lot of Serbs as well, and I've never encountered any animosity when they find out I'm married to a Croat. In fact, they're quite amused when I try out my Serbo-Croatian on them. I think a lot of people just want to move on.
