Back from Bosnia: after a week of internet isolation and stuffing with food, it does feel good to be home. It was a standard routine of doing almost nothing: our two greatest preoccupations were keeping the fire alive in the stove and wondering which neighbors will come to see us next. Which means having coffee after coffee after coffee. The highlights, as usual, include a visit to Banja Luka and a visit to the almost deserted villages in the hills. I shall restrain myself from going into details but here is a sneak preview:
morning tea (in a classic “Jadrolinija” cup from 1980’s) – a tribute to Simply breakfast
the curious display of high school graduates’ portraits in Banja Luka I
the curious display of high school graduates’ portraits in Banja Luka II
a black-eye sight in Banja Luka
communication: obituaries on vital road crossings and bus stops
beans on the market you should have seen the puzzling looks of the sellers when I took this photo
we had some rain
a rural snippet
not my favorite colour
old pear tree in the wind

    Talking about curious displays, check out this one by Gašper: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gasperl/485271079/
    For the uninitiated, the obituaries are displayed on the window of a bakery. Now that’s what they call “niche” marketing :))
