As we wandered around Mostar, one of the things that really struck us was the variety of doors and windows, many reflecting the Ottoman influence. Many are quite intricately decorated, and lots are in brightly-colored walls. These are yet another sign that we are in a place that’s between the East and the West, between European and Arabian influences.

Very interesting.door2

Here is a small selection of what we saw.
