The Weight of Bosnia

I have wanted to do this trip for a long time…still, nothing can quite prepare you for entering a place where, just 12 years ago, it was a war zone.

The trip to Bosnia started off on a less than ideal note.

Charlie and I ended up running for the bus after my Zagreb entry after wasting 20 minutes getting lost. As we boarded the bus, I realized I have never been so happy to be traveling with someone else as I was at that point.

It was an overnight bus (slightly creepy to begin with). And it was full (always a bummer). And its occupants? Thirty some men, two women and us, with no other travelers or “backpackers” (the yellow flag goes up).

I have two minutes left on the internet, so I will have to continue this entry. But, we made it to Sarajevo safety, then onto Mostar and Medujorge (where 6 teenagers spotted the Virgin Mary in June, 1981 and is now a major pilgrammage site for Catholics) and tomorrow, its onto the Croatian coast for the last few days before Charlie leaves. He has a better update, of what is going on at
