I am currently on a trip to Bosnia to visit family and relax. Now that things are coming to a close (I am leaving on Wednesday) and I have some time to share some of the pictures I have gathered.
Cevapi (The Bosnian Fast Food)
Cevapi are BIG is Bosnia, Croatia and the rest of the former Yugoslavia. They are quite good and cheap (<5 Canadian dollars): just a tip: NEVER order the large dish, it will kill you.
Vlasic is an amazing sight with a large relatively flat area which towers over the surrounding countryside. Many people para-glide off it during the summer and ski during the winter.
Churches in Bosnia
There are many old and some new churches in Bosnia. The older ones are amazing architecturally and the newer ones are mostly rebuilt on the foundations of old ones destroyed during the war. Much hate still exists in Bosnia with prejudices being established at a early age. The churches here also feel like very self serving organizations with some small ones serving communities of less then one hundred people but still maintaining 3 or more priests.
Ruins of Bosnia
There are many burnt, destroyed or otherwise abandoned homes/buildings in Bosnia. Now almost 15 years later due to a generally stable population and little need for land many have been left standing. Some are tragically beautiful and reminders of why war sucks.
