On Monday, I successfully handed in my visa stuff at the police (yay!) and then Ljilja and I moved Greg (who had been here in Banja Luka for two months) out of his apartment. Ljilja then dropped us off at the station to catch the train to Zenica (Greg was going on to Sarajevo to fly out). I like going by train, but sometimes it is hot and humid and more like a sauna - and that is what it was like this time!
I went to Zenica to spend time with my friend, Tiffany, and help her with baby Evan while her husband, Sladjan, was gone on camp. Here is Evan, who is just 3 1/2 months, but looks MUCH bigger: He is such a good baby, a total cutie pie and completely stole my heart!
I had a fab week just chilling with good friends, and despite even more of a sauna train ride on the way back - I still love travelling by train in this country. It has the element of surprise each time: you usually meet really interesting people, you get surprised as to where you get stuck (to wait for other trains to go past) and you hardly ever get in on time... But for 32KM (R150, $20) for a return ticket from BL to Zenica, it is the best deal going!
