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!

Visiting Croatia...

Mercè and I arrived yesterday to Dubrovnik in Croatia from Mataró. I had never been in the former Yugoslavia but Mercè had come a few months before the war, so she can make better comparisons. The place where we are staying is Argosy Hotel, a good resort with a pleasant ambiance. People seem to be friendly and I think that they truly are. Today we have been swimming and relaxing, getting in touch with some people and learning more about the place. We have met a Spanish family from Galicia who arrived six days ago. Their experience has been really good and they have given us some good advise and recommended places to visit (and not to visit). Tomorrow we`ll rent and a car and visit Mostar. I hope the trip will be worthwhile.
