After good breakfast, best we've had so far, departed for Mostar.
Stopped at border crossing to Bosnia for almost 3/4 hour while checking passports etc. Arrived Mostar about 11am when weather changed, a north wind, really strong then turned cold. Walked to the bridge through market stalls, lots of people. Bridge was very difficult to climb as it was so steep and very windy. Diving had stopped because of wind. Just started to rain so found a restaurant and stopped for lunch, nothing exciting. Didnt find the whole bridge visit that good, too crowded and cold/wet.Really just a tourist trap now.
Back to bus in the rain to leave at 2.30pm. Driving around amazing to see the bullet holes still in many buildings, some still abandoned and burnt out.
Long drive to Sarajevo Novotel Bristol hotel, room 701 was too noisey so changed to 903.
Quick freshen up then really good dinner at lovely restaurant. 4 rooms of mrs Safija. Back to hotel 9.30pm for bed. I got a sore throat/ cold brewing so looking forward to bed.
