Mostar

On the way from Trebinje to Sarajevo, we stopped off in Mostar to see an old friend of mine, Sabrina Lively, and to go see the new "old" bridge...

For those who don't know the Stari Most (or Old Bridge) was a 400 year old Turkish bridge which was destroyed in 1993 by the Croats during the war between Croats and Muslims. It was rebuilt (in exactly the same way witht he same materials as 400 years ago) at a cost of $15million and reopenned last year as a symbol of reconciliation and regeneration in Bosnia and Hercegovina. It is a really beautiful sight and well worth a visit...

Here is Ljilja and I with it behind us...
