On Bosnian Culture

After a little more than a week in Sarajevo I have almost completely adjusted to the pace of Bosnian life. Everything moves significantly slower than it does in Denver and the United States. Work is interrupted by multiple coffee breaks a day, emails remain unanswered for days, and meals last hours. If you don’t have a significant amount of patience, coping with the Bosnian lifestyle can be a challenge.  Although it took a little bit of adjustment to adapt to the slower pace of life, it has been a welcome change from the day-to-day life in Denver because you never need to hurry or worry about being late. The Bosnian pace of life certainly keeps stress levels low, at least until you try to find a waiter when you need something at dinner.
