Sarajevo, Zenica and Zagreb...

On the way back from Trebinje I stopped off for a night in Sarajevo, visiting Enisa, the leader of EUS (InterVarsity). On Saturday, we met up with Jenny and Tiffany and had a girls "afternoon" at Vrelo Bosna (the source of the Bosna River, and a very pretty place to wander around). Then "the Tiff" and I headed to Zenica where I stayed with her for 4 days, visiting old friends from when I lived there.

I took some of my butternut squash (Dragana's dad planted some seeds from SA for me in their garden and now I have plenty of butternut - something that you DON'T get here normally) and made it for Tiff and Jocelyn (Donovan was there too, but he doesn't do veggies!) and it turned out really GOOOD! Good times...

I drove back up to Banja Luka on Wednesday and had Thursday to catch up on mails and around the house...

Then on Friday morning I drove up to Zagreb (2 1/2 hours) with Dragana as company to pick up Lea, who is coming to work with the Finnish family working in Banja Luka. Dragana and I went into the city and met up with my friend, Jasna, and we had a great day - from McDonalds (there is NO McDonalds in Bosnia, the last country in Europe without it!!) to great Vincek IceCream and Fornetti (really great little pastries, also only to be found in Croatia). At 8pm we headed to the airport to get Lea and then drove back - getting back around 12pm!

Today I took Lea around Banja Luka and sorted out some things for her, remembering fondly how people like Rod and Jo did that for me in Zenica and Mary here in Banja Luka! The Finnish family arrived back today from Finland and so they came round to pick her up this afternoon to go over to stay with them...
