kosovo, at the coffeeshop

I just asked the Hungarian barista here at the coffeeshop what he thought of Kosovo's independence.
"No problem," he said casually. "My country was one of the first to recognize its independence."
"Oh, good," I said, jumping to a chipper American conclusion. "So you don't think it'll be World War III?"
"No, I didn't say that!" he said. "Who knows? It's always been a hotspot. But these first couple days have been peaceful, so we can always hope..."
