TDI07: A day trip into Bosnia

This day in 2007:

Famous Bridge at Mostar

This famous bridge in Mostar is a UNESCO world heritage site.  It didn’t always look like this.  It was destroyed in war.

"Dont forget" refers to the war that not only destroyed this bridge (now restored with the help of UNESCO) but also ripped apart Yugoslavia and the lives of many people.
As with all wars, so much could have been done to stop it ...
