His family is from an island off the coast of a city named Zadar. You need to take a boat. Here is what goes on inside the boat.
They have a well at the house where all the "shower" water comes from. We'd each fill a bucket in the morning and the sun would heat it up.
There was a gnarly full solar eclipse on the second day. I have a better photo in color that I'll post later.
We went to a BBQ with Alan's whole family. I think this lady was a some sort of distant great aunt. She didn't talk or move very fast and nobody talked to her.
We took a bus ride to Sarajevo. The Siege of Sarajevo was the longest siege in modern warfare history and had ended in early '96. I remember there was holes in everything. I remember they were using German Marks for currency and that made it expensive as hell. I also remember the people seemed super happy.
These two landmark towers. The one on the left was totally hollowed out (more on those buildings later)
