stunned

Today was my first time on a bus from Sarajevo northward to e. Croatia. I was stunned when I observed the conditions along the road in north central Republika Srpka (the ethnic Serbian part of BiH).

I feel like I saw more ruins of houses from the war (presumably) than I have seen since my first visit to Vukovar in ’03, a little over a decade.

Indeed, the conditions in this part of the region rival southern Serbia for being run down but compounded by the war damage, which appears untouched. My heart goes out to these people.
