We all were woken by builders across the street working on a new hotel. As we were all feeling the affects of our late night we remained in bed until the afternoon.
Promptly we set about organising to go on an organised tour of Sarajevo. Starting with the assassination point of Archduke Franz Ferdinand out guide pointed out various historical and more recent sites around the city. We were driven out to the airport, to learn more, & walk through the tunnel that was Sarajevo lifeline during the more recent conflict. Interestingly our guide, just three years younger than myself talked about his life growing up in a city were stepping outside put your life in danger. There has not been a census here since 1991. Another is scheduled soon but if you choose to identify yourself as a Bosnian as opposed to a religious group, you loose out politically and economically. With three presidents from the major religious groups taking 8month shifts in charge of the country, this part of the world is a long way from being described as stable.
Following the tour we headed back to the apartment to choose a restaurant for the evening. Trip advisor pointed us to one very close to the apartment. This restaurant we later found catered to the foreign diplomats who visit and work in Sarajevo. With superb local wine and food it is easy to see why this restaurant has such a good reputation. My grilled fish literally came sizzling on the plate.
To round the night off we headed to the Sarajevsko brewery for a pivo. This large beer hall which also served food was an interesting mix of drinkers smokers & diners. The 90's Cd they played for the background music didn't quite fit with the surroundings. Was fun non the less of course.
