Enough Already!

You really would think that a city that was under siege for 3 years wouldn't care for the sound of anything sounding like a mortar being shot or a gun being fired. Why people shoot fireworks off here - that go boom very loudly - for Ramadan, for Christmas, and no doubt, for New Year's, is beyond me.

Hi Meli :) I wish you register and open a thread (in English, of course) about mentioned absurdity, here: http://www.sarajevo-x.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=1&sid=326805bd5a258dd5e4880081131de9d0

Thank you for the images. On the last link you've provided, p. 2, the 9th picture down, where the blackest smoke is, is the area where we now live. I have only witnessed war from afar - our troops go elsewhere to fight, not on our homeland. I find it so incredible that people stayed, and so sad that so many died and there was so much suffering. In 12 years, Sarajevo's come a long way, but I know it's still not like the way it was before the war.

Exactly, it is so sad! Also, you are right about photo posted on 30/07/2005 15:16. Here is one more 1992-1996 galery: http://www.sa92.ba/v1/index.php?x=browse&category=&pagenum=1
