    Bosanka: Mama's is the place!

    by american_tourister Written May 19, 2004

    This place is literally 50' outside the fence from Eagle Base. It is "The Place" for expats as it is the only place close enough to walk to. Walk to, crawl from.

    The owner (Ado) is a nincompoop who routinely overcharges and double charges so you really have to watch him carefully.

    Favorite Dish: French Fries (Chips) and Malt Vinegar. It really goes well with a cold Lasko Pivo.

    Ado, you are an a$$hole.

    Trgovina: Bologna sandwiches and walnuts

    by american_tourister Updated Dec 20, 2002

    This little shop is walking distance for me. A store for food and small goods is called a Trgovina. This one has a deli counter and 1 kilo bags of walnuts for $2.00 A bologna sandwich, a Red Bull, and some paprika flavor potato chips makes for a Bosnian power lunch. I am going to get some more walnuts and ship them home. I am hoping my wife will turn them into cookies and mail them back!

    What to pay: Cheap. The walnuts are $2.00 a kilo and the sandwich, red bull and chips are $2.50

    School is in shifts

    by american_tourister Updated Dec 20, 2002

    There is a shortage of schools and teachers. To alleviate this critical shortage they have school in two shifts a day. There is a morning group and an evening group. The elementary school in this photo is located close to us and we built the fence you see here. We did this because of all the traffic in the area. We don't want the kids to get hurt.

    A Wild Englishman

    by american_tourister Updated Jan 24, 2004

    If you see this man....RUN!!!!

    He will make you sit down for A (one..singular....not several) beer and this is the start of an evening of inane conversation, beer swilling, shot quaffing, smoking, more adolescent conversation, more beer, another shot, slurred conversation, another pack of fags Ado, a glance at the watch and then a mad dash to the gate to beat curfew.

    If you are lucky you can sneak him past the guards and help carry him back as he bounces off all the ropes along the roads.

    In other words, you have found my friend Jerry. If you ever get to Dubrave you can find him in the Bosanka just about every evening after 18:00. Tell him that Fat James said, "Pi$$ off Tosser!"

    Another day at the office

    Nicest Church around

    by american_tourister Written Feb 25, 2003

    Even though there was a terrible war here recently, there are still areas where the three main religions can coexist. Dubrave has two of the three. Ther is a big Catholic community here (that makes them Croats) and theri church has been rebuilt since the war.

    Soccer Mad!

    by american_tourister Updated Jun 9, 2005

    Everyone plays Soccer (English Football). You see kids playing and even adults have leagues and play for sport. Here is a photo of my wanker buddy Jerry playing a little "kickball" with some of the local boys.

    Equipment: You need a ball. You need a field. You need a goal. You need some lungs and legs.

    Jerry Beckham!
