On a cold January morning in May 2015, I was heading to the capital city of Kosovo, to visit relatives, but not to do business.
Kosovans, like most people, don’t need to go anywhere without permission.
They simply need to visit and buy something, and there is no way around it.
For the first time in my life, I felt like a foreigner.
This was my first time visiting Kosovars, a small Muslim nation located about 2,400 kilometers (1,200 miles) south of Tel Aviv.
The city is also home to a significant population of Kosovar refugees, who fled the fighting in the 1990s.
The refugees are descendants of the first Jews to settle in the region.
I was excited to visit them.
In the early days of Kosova’s independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1912, many Kosovas joined the Ottoman empire.
The Ottoman government, which was founded in 1923 by the Ottoman Sultan and his brother, had a monopoly on trade and military power in the Balkans.
This meant that Kosovs were in control of their own destiny and could freely decide their own course in life.
Kosova, which had been under Ottoman rule since the 18th century, became a republic in 1918, and the Ottomans transferred their control over the territory to the Kosovarist state in 1922.
Since then, Kosova has been a part of a united and democratic Serbia, and it was the first country in the world to recognize Kosov’s independence in 1992.
Today, Kosovan citizens are free to travel around the country, but they need a visa from the Serbian government, and some of them may even need a special permit.
Since I was traveling in the north of the country and wanted to visit a city called Lomeli, Kosova was the closest I could get to the center of Kosovan life.
This city is home to the town of Lomela, a city that’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and where I was able to visit the ruins of the old town of Rastan, a UNESCO site.
Lomelo is one of the oldest and most important towns in Kosova.
During my stay, I learned about the history of Koslovas people and their culture, which has remained the same for generations.
As I walked around the old city, I found myself thinking about the great battles that took place here in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
During World War II, Kosovets troops liberated Kosovia from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, but the Germans and Soviets used the town as a staging point for their invasion of Europe.
The Ottoman army used Lomelas fortifications to attack the Serbian capital, Belgrade.
I spent a few days at Lomelei, the site of one of Kosolovas greatest battles, in 1915.
When the Germans were preparing to launch their invasion, Lomels defenders and their own men in the town held back the advancing German forces.
The defenders, led by Kosovamers and Kosovarians, defended the town for three weeks until the Austrians and the Germans finally forced them to surrender.
Lomoeli is one ancient city, and its history is fascinating.
Today it’s known as a tourist destination, and today Kosovamas live and work there, but when I visited, it was an empty city.
As a tourist, I thought I would explore the old village, which is home only to the residents of Lomoela, and then visit the nearby ruins of Rastsan.
The ruins of this ancient town are still visible, and I was surprised to find that they are still standing.
They were built by Kosolomans during the late 18th and 19th centuries, and now are considered a UNESCO Heritage Site.
The Kosovastrians were Kosovareans, who came from the northern part of what is now Serbia, but had been exiled by the Ottoms.
The ethnic Kosovari population in the country has been steadily decreasing since World War I. The last ethnic Kosolobian to leave was the great-great-grandson of Kosolo, the great grandson of the Ottoman ruler.
Many Kosolocs still live in Kosov, but many others are in the area of the Rastsanian town of Komsk, where the ruins are.
The Rastsanias town was built in the 9th century by the ancient people of Koslo, who settled here.
I found the old buildings in the old ruins, but I didn’t really understand what I was looking at.
After spending some time in the ruins, I realized that I was going to be spending quite some time here.
Kosolomanics live in a complex way.
They believe in preserving the ancient culture, and they’re willing to make sacrifices to protect it.
The main building of the Kosolomeries city hall is a replica
