City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

Just got back from theatre, I was at the premiere of Dr Faust by Christopher Marlowe which was directed by Haris Pašović, Bosnian biggest theatre director. It's a collaboration of East West Center Sarajevo, British Council and Bosnian Cultural Centre Tuzla.
Lots of important people came form Sarajevo especially for this premiere, it was such a thrill to sit just behind 'theeee' Tim Clancy - founder of Green Visions.
Authorities are trying to make Tuzla a theatre city =)

I'm a trained acctress and I wish I can play in one of the plays directed by
Pašović... oh wishfull thinking.

Kala - yes theee Mr Clancy 'thanx for corr =)' he was with his girlfriend in front of me, in a couple of weeks I will go rafting on the river Neretva with Green Visions, maybe I'll post some extra photos to show off how much fun I had - I'm hoping to have.

Yes it was something like a red carpet affair, I even had my hair done for the premiere, they organized the party afterwards, BIG DEAL for me =)

It would be a big deal for me - for sure - I hardly ever dress up except for very special occasions and this is definitely a winner - how fun to sit behind Mr. Clancy one day and then rafting the next - I am looking forward to those pics - Tuzla seems to be a great place to live!

Come on now guys...no need to take the piss. You see, the thing is, the reason I get a little 'face' time is simple (and rather a shame). So much of what i know comes from Bosnians, yet when they speak - no one listens. NOw when some crazy, hippy, lefty Amerikanac says the same exact thing - he is on the front page of the newspaper.

Anyway, the play was interesting...a bit slow at first (for me) but certianly gained momentum to give it a thumbs up. Despite its horribly destructive thermo elektrana I find Tuzla and Tuzlaci to be great - and I'm glad more and more is happening there.

Sarajevo is a great city...but sometimes its ego is a bit too big to bear. Tuzla may be the only truly multi-ethnic town left in Bosnia - which I, as a yankee and world citizen, truly appreciate.

How was rafting by the way? And please don't call me Mr. Clancy. Tim will do.

jazzy, where is your sense of adventure. There is surely a few more days of 25+ weather left in Herzgegovina. We have all the wet suit gear you need - which will honestly keep you warm and cosy. The Neretva is a magical river -- try it now, you'll love it. I promise.

by the way, its a pleasure to be here.

I have a small offer for you...being that you seem to be a local patriot and obviously speak excellent english what do you think about writing a small peice for the next edition of the Buybook guide book for Central and North Bosnia. Being that i'm horribly paid, its a pro bono job, but i love to have local people participate in writing about their own country.

let me know if you're interested. We have time...so no rush. peace tim

TIM CLANCY!!! No Way! We love that guy here in America. I remember when he scored 47 points in a schoolyard pickup game. What a jump shot he has. He must play for the Bih national team now huh?
