Another bus tour into Bosnia Herzegovina. First stop Pocitelj, a small traditional Muslim town with old mosque & cobbled streets .
Drove through the Neretva River valley showing fertile agriculture area-mandarins, grapes, olives, figs.
On to Mostar which is an amazing city with an eclectic mixture of Bosnian Muslim on one side of river (very Turkish) & Croatian catholics on the other. The architecture reflects this on oposing sides of the river.
The city was devastated during the Homeland War including the Old Bridge-made famous by Hamish & Andy, who jumped off it into the cold Neretva River below (10').
Young Mostar men are not known to be 'men' until they have jumped off this bridge by the end of the summer. There were a couple of guys waiting for enough donations to warrant a jump & eventually 2 did. 21m drop into cold water!
