Last day in Sarajevo.
Got up and packed everything up. I went for a very quick walk down to the old Yugoslavian barracks that were in use under President Tito. Although a dictator, his reign is generally looked on favourbaly as everything was rather stable in Yugoslavia, compared to the chaos that would ensue during the coming years.
Quickly walked back to the hostel where we loaded up the car and went of driving with Beno. He took us to the area of Sarajevo where the Serbs were in control and would shoot civilians, which in effect created what is known as Snipers Alley. Went right up the hill into what was one of the main Serb command areas, and an old destroyed building that was also partly used as a prison, pretty grim stuff.
Back in the car and on the way out to 'the tunnel'. During the war a tunnel was dug that went under the UN protected airport and into the 'free area' of Bosnia which the Serbs had not managed to completely cut off. Many supplies and communication devices were smuggled in, kinda like a life line for the city. Some residents also tried to escape, although more often than not there were Serb snipers waiting for them as they exited the tunnel and attempted to run across the open field.
After walking through there, and looking through the small museum we made our way to the airport. Said goodbye to Beno, who had been truly fantastic with helping us out. It had felt more like staying with a friend than simply a host.
The flight back was good enough, until we got to Milan and found out London had been hit by heavy rain and the flight would be delayed by over an hour. Thankfully managed to get work the next day covered.
Overall and extremely good trip!
