Mostar - The Old Bridge

Bosnia&Herzegovina is a country where my late father was born, therefore i like it very much. However, now it isn't a place I used to know. Everything has changed, even the old bridge in Mostar, you see on this picture, does not exist! I took this picture somwhere in August 1989, now it isn't more than a sad memory. Sad as bosnian folk songs so-called "sevdah" can bee.

Buduci da sam po ocu i bosnjackog porijekla, to osjecam za potrebu da izrazim svoje neslaganje sa ovom nakaradom od Bosne koja je tako "uredjena" voljom i diktatom onih koji sebe nazivaju "medjunarodna zajednica", ma sto da to znacilo.
U vrijeme kada se ruse sve moguce granice, nekakvi "faktori" su sebi uzeli za pravo da Bosnu dijele na vilajete, vracajuci je tako u njenu pretpovijest. Jos nam samo fale hajduci i harac.
E budalastog li naroda koji je sve to objerucke prihvatio pa sada vise nismo Bosanci, a to je jedino sto mozemo biti, vec smo nekakvi jadni Srbi, Hrvati i Bosnjaci. Pitam se je li se nasi, koji su otisli u Ameriku, tamo predstavljaju kao Bosnjaci-Srbi iz Republike Srpske u Bosni i Hercegovini, Bosnjaci-Bosnjaci (Muslimani) iz Federacije BiH u Bosni i Hercegovini, ili mozda imaju nekakvu prikladiniju i kracu verziju? Zamisli si da se na taj nacin predstavljas kada se nadjes negdje u svijetu!

Janjetina na ražnju

Bosnia is a land of barbecued lamb,which is the most popular dish among the locals.
Almost everywhere you go, in particolarly along the roads, this picture will follow you.

The Muslim graveyard

By the look of the tombstone you can find out weather the deceased was a male or female, young or old when died, rich or poor, etc.

    My mother and father were born in Bosnia, in Glamoc and Bihac. I'm planning a trip in the spring. First flying to Belgrade, renting a car and driving to Sarajevo, Bihac, and Banja Luka. Your page is great. Do you have recent info. Thank you.

    Excellent and very interesting page. What do you mean by ''look at the position of the door'' ? Could you be more specific ? Thanks
