From Sarajevo: One sign says it all





In front of the Gazi Husrev-Bergs mosque in the old city of Sarajevo there is a sign informing you what you cannot do inside. It's a commentary on the history of this city.

In case you cannot decipher the symbols I have printed a large shot below:


NO: loud talking, smoking, cellphoning, MACHINE GUNS, pets, bikes, short skirts [or as some observors said: sexy blond ladies], eating, or snuggling.

Machine guns....

The reason they display this is because Gazi Husrev-Bergs mosque is a religious institution and on their property, they have a set of values they want mosque visitors to observe, which is perfectly fine.

And did I say it was not????

No, Deborah. I wasn't trying to say you meant anything bad. I just wanted to point this out to the readers of your blog, so they don't get confused :) I know you meant well. You are a good person.

PS: You might have noticed I respond to your blog with 2 different accounts. The reason for this is because I use one account from library and the other when I am at home. I always sign posts with my name, so you will know.

Actually I did not think it was funny. I said it was a commentary on the history of this area.
