Back in the Balkans

Just a quick post from Europe, where I’ve been through a succession of climates, countries, and airports. A couple days ago it was Denmark, and right now I’m breathing in the memorably smoky air and taking in the East-meets-West atmosphere of Sarajevo, where of course everything exploded one summer day in 1914, and later faced catastrophe during the siege of 1992-1995. Long may the city prosper, and long may the wonderful mix of cultures and religions persist. And long may I continue to explore all this wonderful stuff, if the burek and cevapi don’t give me a heart attack first.
