the cities, the parks, the mountains, the rivers….all of that makes bosnia beautiful. but what i enjoyed most were the people.  i enjoyed riding the tram (despite the sweltering heat and sheer number of people on it) because it felt like i got a snapshot of bosnia (and sarajevo, to be exact).  and people’s faces tell stories no matter where you are. some are serious, others happy, silly… still others looked mournful, sad and melancholy.  i felt that even though sarajevo is rebuilding and appears to be “fine” (it IS a beautiful city, so rich in history), it’s people told a slightly different story.  you can patch mortar holes, paint over graffiti and rebuild things, but you can’t remove the hurt and pain that has scarred people from centuries of war and conflict.
