Roll on October....

First of all my apologies to people occasionally reading this blog, I haven't been very good at posting. I will try to write more.

I have recently returned from a two week trip to Bosnia-Herzegovina (we all tend to leave off Herzegovina from the name of the country and that really pisses off the Herzegovinians, so doing my bit to soothe some ruffled feathers).

My stay in Sarajevo started with a surreal landing at the airport where Richard Gere was filming his new film. There was barbed wire, sandbags, UN felt like a scene in Kusturica's "Underground" - the one where Blacky comes our from the shelter after 20 years underground (where he thinks that the war has continued all this time) and lands on a film set where a WWII movie is being filmed.

I wonder if they used the now hidden interior of the old airport in the filming? I have seen the old airport building as it's where I arrived my first two times there, and the third time I went the new modern airport with the cool gigantic revolving doors was in use. I had to go to the old part to get a bag the usually efficient Lufthansa forgot in Munich or Frankfurt, I forget which, involved a trip to the old area so I could claim the bag.
