Today, I had the fortune to locate a nice apartment in the Eastern section of Mostar, near the mountains. I have been running in the mountains surrounding the city, which have a empty feeling. A single narrow track runs up the mountains, tracing a series of narrow switchbacks through a empty landscape. It feels like you are in another world altogether.
The landscape varies from a beautiful trees to hard rocky soil. This morning, there was a fine layer of fog just touching the very tops.
From up there, you can see a river of red roofs running next to the Neva river. Red roofs punctuated by tall brutalist apartment blocks.
