We arrived at our apartment in Sarajevo at 17:30, making the total day close to nine hours. We stopped twice for a total of less that two hours, but still....
Most of the day was a mix of sun and clouds with a few sprinkles, but as we drove into Sarajevo, it started to rain seriously. It's now 21:30, and the rain hasn't let up.
Bosnia is a beautiful country, filled with rolling green hills, some covered with lush forest, others with pastures and grazing sheep. The road, which was all twisty two-lane highway except for about 30 kilometers of autoroute approaching Sarajevo, is punctuated by tiny villages and some bigger towns. We stopped first in Bihać, about a half hour into our trip. There are some interesting things to see there, so it was worth a stop of about 45 minutes just to wander around.

While we were there we had lunch at a pizzeria and grill, and I finally tried my first ćevapi. They were even better than I imagined.
By the time we got to Sarajevo, I was exhausted. In fact, I don't know why I'm still up. I should go to bed. We have a whole house on a quiet and very narrow street right in the old town, and since Troy is leaving tomorrow, I will be here by myself

I'll finish by saying I hope it doesn't rain tomorrow, and I'll have pics of Sarajevo, rain or shine.
