Not too many pictures to show from Bosnia but the country side is gorgeous and there's so much history in Sarajevo. We just had a night and half day in the city but we made the most of it. We saw the bridge where the assassination of Franz Ferdinand sparked World War I, the eternal flame, and Bascarsija or the old town. Much of Sarajevo was destroyed during the war so the city has grown into this unique blend of old and new. The Bascarsija is full of markets and little local cafes on cobble stone streets but go a few blocks further and you're waiting for a crosswalk signal in a modern downtown.
Even in the modern areas there are scars left from more recent hostilities. The sidewalks are freckled with red resin-filled holes, called Sarajevo roses, which were left behind from Serbian grenade attacks in the 1990s.
We met some really nice people along the way...a cyclist from Africa on our bus from Split who told us about his friend that's biking from London to China (crazzzzy) and the most helpful/handsome Bosnian man who led us to the airport. Other than that it was a short flight to Turkey and a great impromptu day in Sarajevo!
