Day 1

I am sitting on a lovely patio in the heart of Sarajevo. In our first 24 hours we have had great food, met friendly people, and seen some beautiful sights. We also have constant reminders of the history of this city. Ancient buildings full of history, the Han inn where travelers could stay and leave their horses, and old city walls remind me how long this city has been here. It must be said that there are constant reminders of the siege. There are buildings still destroyed, scars in the concrete from grenades, and the stories of many people we have met. I still don’t know what to do with all this yet or what I am here to learn. I do know that i feel energized by this city, amazed by the people, hopeful for the future, and I am anticipating curiously what will come.
