Saying Goodbye. Part 1.

I suck at goodbye's...

Yet, here I am. 1 a.m., Wednesday morning. Behind on sleep. Behind on packing. Three days to go and no more Sarajevo. It's hard to believe. Yet, here I am.

I'm feeling a little sad and fairly nostalgic. One of these days, someone will remind me that Sarajevo wasn't all lightness and brightness and cheer, but, for now, even the toxic smog has its charms.

(I will miss the way you can smell Bosnia before you even hit the runway. I will miss the way the burning leaves and foggy pollutants stick to my hair.)

I know I'll come back. But visiting a place is different from living in a place. We all know that. So.


As a final homage to the city that has become my home, I give you Sarajevo in pictures. Part 1.

Gosh, I so understand what you mean. At least you have someone to share the memories with.

Merry Christmas and all the best for the new beginning!
