Almost Outta Here
Last day here. Another gorgeous day as most of my days here have been. Bosnia-Herzegovina is not a war zone or the dangerous place the name seems to bring to mind. The country is beautiful, the people are friendly...once you are introduced, the food is great, it is inexpensive and it is safe to walk around at all hours of the day or night. Strange politics here in that there are 3 presidents that rotate every 8 months...one prez each for the Serbs, Croats and Bosnians. I have walked over the bridge where Archduke Frans Ferdinand was shot by a Serb which started WWI. The program we put on was defensive tactics training for the cops here and it was a 2-week instructor level course. I have enjoyed my time here but look forward to being home again.
