a little about Bosnia

I guess I’ll start off 2014 writing a little about my home country, Bosnia and Herzegovina.  The capital of Bosnia is Sarajevo, and that’s where I’m from.  Here are some photos from my mom’s trip to Bosnia when she went there to adopt me.  (I am not in any of these pictures, however, because I was packing my suitcase to get ready for the trip back to the USA, but I thought you might enjoy learning a bit more about my home country.)

Mmm, I remember the food being beary delicious… and cheap!

Fresh Bosnian bread… crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside – yum!  I really miss this.

This is called ćevapi or ćevapčići and it is a meat sausage in pita bread with onions and butter.

There is a famous water fountain in the section of town called Baščaršija and that’s where you can feed pigeons.

There are lots of interesting things you can buy from the merchants, such as jewelry and other knick knacks.  Sarajevo is also known for its handmade copper tins.

My mom bought a lot of jewelry from the merchants.  She told me she tried to haggle with them, but didn’t get a very good deal since she doesn’t know much Bosnian.  I bet I could have gotten her a good deal if I was there!
Hmm… I wonder if these are magic flying carpets?
The small street alleyways are lit up by these pretty lanterns…
Some views of the city from the mountains…

Here is a Bosnian dog.  I guess they look like American dogs but most of them don’t speak English.

And if you are wondering, yes, bears are very welcome in Bosnia as you can see from this picture.

I hope to visit Bosnia again soon!  🙂
