Days Two and Three. For this part of the trip we stayed in the center of town at Hotel Old Sarajevo.
Coffee or tea?
The boys still remember their Azeri preschool skills of holding sugar cubes in their teeth to drink tea.
Sarajevo was the most interesting part of our adventure. Maybe not the most comfortable or the best food, but definitely the place that made us think and even changed how we think. Wars, religion, Turkish sausage, and instead of church steeples there are minarets rising from every village skyline.
The haystacks are a different shape.
The road from Zagreb was not easy to follow, and even the GPS was lost when we came to the large wooden signs saying “Welcome to Republic of Srpska.”
We’ve been to a few places that claim to be where East meets West… Baku, Istanbul, Marrakesh, Cyprus, St. Petersburg. I guess East and West have a lot of edges. We’ll add Sarajevo to the list!
I think it’s funny that in these pictures of us, one looking east and one looking west, our legs look exactly the same.
Here I am thinking about contrast again. And I’m thinking that Life would be flat without it.
