I was born long time ago, my brother,
I've never moved from this city,
But I saw too much people,
They came to me to touch me.

The first leg step on me,
The whole city toasted me,
The first "leaf" jumped from me,
My creator died.

Under me, cold water nips,
But my cold stone will flame up,
In it everybody hardly waits,
To lie down on me, to step on me.

I, hit, didn't die, or fall,
I just had to jump down,
I'll continue exactly where I stopped,
"The Old" will rise again for those who love him.

The page was made with a help of my niece Ivana. A lot of kisses for her.

    I visited Motsar. Icant believe how strong you all are. The whole country is so brave to come back, stand up and say ' you cant beat us down'. i admire the spirit and determination but i do dwell in the sadness of it all x Amelie

    Mostar's old bridge (Stari Most) was restored last year and is back in public use.
