    I forgot to mention the weather, in Mostar it was incredibly hot, 45 degrees celcious....thats about 110-115 fahrenheit, I know 40 celcious is 104 fahrenheit
    Never been hot that before, it was too much for me and all the locals, my grandma who has lived in Bosnia all her life(She was originally from Brcko and came to Mostar some 25 years ago) cant handle it, nor can most people who live there now
    I couldnt handle it either, the heat is just unbelivable

    That would certainly keep people off the street and encourage people to jump off a bridge.

    Thats a site with a live cam overlooking the bridge, however, the site is in Bosnian and I doubt anyone here would be able to read Bosnian [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    You can still have a look at the cam, though, you might even see a diver jumping off [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] (Throughout the bridges 450 year history, many young men jumped off the bridge for fun and they sitll do)

    If you jump off the bridge in the summer you certanly wont die, there are many onlookers and divers always og in groups now and they would alert paramedics if somebody got hurt in the water
    However, some people attempt to swim in the river Neretva where strong currents and whirlpools are present, and some of them dont return alive
    There are sometimes true horror stories of fishers seeing a hand floating just above the water or finding a body thats been washed up on Neretvas banks
    My friend Aiša lost her dad when he had a heart attack on ones of the birdges connecting both sides of the city, he then fell off the bridge and into the river, the river then took him away and he was found washed up on its banks

    I was lucky enough to see the bridge before it got blown up. I'm glad to see it restored. And I'm glad to see that the insanity seems to be over. It's such a beautiful city and region, you'd think that people would just learn to enjoy it, but it's never quite so easy.
