Rediscovering Mostar

The trip from Dubrovnik to Mostar took us more than two hours by car. We had no problems with the the police officers except when we were required to show the car's green card at the Bosnia-Herzegovina border. We could see many small villages around Neretva river before arriving at our expected destination, Mostar. That town had suffered a lot because of the war, and we could see that on almost every street and in every stone of its buildings but not in its strong and hopeful citizens. Although some facilities have been rebuilt, there is still a long way to go and a lot of work to do. However, as we could see, the Mostar bridge area has been successfully rebuilt and tourism and joy seem to grow there. The town is becoming upbeat and hopeful that hard work will succeed at last. For sure!
