Somehow everything looks better with the yellow! My bestie Lejla who helped the most, brought the flowers, and I’m really enjoying the light in my place now. The girls helped clean everything and we took out the stuff I don’t need. Some helped with the sandwiches while we painted, and my favorite quote out of frustrated came from Lejla:”I wish no men would show up until we finish, just to show them that we can do it all by ourselves!” Then Ben showed up and thanks to him, we managed to bring it all where we wanted it. The next two weeks I spent working with Ben on a project at the daily center Pomirenje in Zenica.
We photographed Nedim’s wedding in Sarajevo, and climbed a bit in Saraj, saw fashiony girls in downtown and then returned to Zenica. I feel I haven’t showen Ben enough or as much as I wanted to. I took him to the mountain, then to Travnik and the beautiful mountain there. And Bosnia sure looks like New Hampshire-which is where Ben’s from.
He left two days ago, and just when I wanted to take out the card from my camera, I found 50 Bosnian marks inside the slot. I forget how great and kind this man is. Thanks, and hope you enjoyed Bosnia and all the chevapi.
