New book

I got a new book today which was quite a treat – the autobiography of Alija Izetbegovic, former President of Bosnia-Herzegovina. He led the country to its independence from the former Yugoslavia and during the wars in the 1990s.

We passed by an impressive looking grave on our way up to the fortress to watch the sunset above Sarajevo. We saw a soldier praying beside it and wondered who it was and it turned out when we looked closer on the way back down it was President Izetbegovic’s.
