Fresh Water

On the nicer side...if you go up in the mountains far enough, you can still drink the water where it comes out of the side of a mountain. Along the road from Kakanj to Ponijeri, there are a number of water stops where fresh drinkable water is available at the side of the road.

However, out in the boonies, the issue remains land mines. In the past few weeks a number of people have blown themselves up wandering off the beaten was apparently hunting mushrooms, two more were chopping wood, and just Saturday I believe two mine clearing workers were killed in an accident.

WARNING - Don't wander off the road if you are not familiar with the area.

The Real Miljacka River

A continuation of my earlier rant. These were taken at the same time as the photos in this earlier post and are the "comes later" photos I promised at the is what most photos DON"T show.

Every visitor we've had, pretty much any foreigner I've talked to here, says something along these lines at some point..."This would be such a beautiful country except for the litter everywhere."
