I made it to Sarajevo. It is even more fascinating than I could ever image. The city is divided into sections based on religion. I am staying in the old town, which is the Muslim side of the city. It has a very strong Turkish influence dating back to the time of the Ottamon Empire. There is a Muslim cementary by the hostel with hundreds of tombs from the war. The death dates are all from 1995.

Tomorrow I am going sight seeing and visiting some of the many mosques in Old town. I hope to make it over to the stadium where the olympics were held in 1984. I know already I want to stay for a few days.
