Bosnian Dinner

This restaurant is in the neighborhood of both Kerry's and the Larson's residence.  It has beautiful food that tastes as good as it looks.  The top photo is a caprese salad, and below that is a tuna salad.  My beef medallions were delicious and a huge portion.  Andreas had the leg of lamb, which he loved.

View From Police Station

This top photo was actually inside the station.  If you look closely, you'll see "Besarabia e Romania."  That means Moldova is Romania.  A lot of people on both sides want to meld Moldova and Romania together.  Needless to say, the Russia supporters don't want that.  The lower photos show why there was an artillery battery here during the siege of Sarajevo.  The station is completely trashed now, but the city is back to growing.

Lunch At The Brewery

Sarajevo Brewery has a restaurant.  It's decorated like something from the 1880's, which is when the structure was built.  We had lunch with the Larsons there while going around town.  All of it was delicious, and we even got free samples of beer.

Turkish Coffee

While out with Theresa and Kent, we stopped in a Turkish coffee shop.  Andreas had hot chocolate.  I had tea.  And it was served differently!  It was good, but there was a lot of smoke about.

Eternal Flame

This is Sarajevo's eternal flame.  It's tucked in between where two streets come together.

More Windows And A Staircase

 More photos of pretty stained glass windows, and I always wonder about this kind of stair.

The Orthodox Church

 The Orthodox church allowed us to take photos, so Andreas did.  It was also pretty much rebuilt, just like the Catholic one, after the war.

This is a memorial to the first company of militia to form to protect Sarajevo in 1991.  Before the end of the year, most of them were dead.  Many of the rest died later in the war.

More Modern Sarajevo

More of modern Sarajevo; the architecture seems to be nineteenth century onwards.  The sculpture is from after the war.  The church is Orthodox.

Christian Old Town Sarajevo

The old town of Sarajevo also has a Christian/Western part.  The buildings are newer - nineteenth century - and full of ornamentation.  There are also markings on the ground.  See the photo of the red splashes?  That is where a mortar fell.  The number of red spots is the number of people who died because of it.

Bombed Out Police Station

This is the site the city view photos were taken from.  As you can see, it is totally rundown and in need of the mercy of the wrecking ball.  One piece of graffiti I found interesting was the bit of conflict from Moldova - "Moldova is Romania."  Very odd to see that in the Balkans!  You'd think the Balkans would have enough of their own problems.
