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.

CD of your choice

Where do you buy your CDs?

Pirate CDs are being sold on the street, agree or don’t but when the pockets are empty one doesn’t have much choice.
Well in Tuzla lots of things are up side down so people are bending corners whenever they can.

Yes, many a time I have made purchases such as these in eastern Europe.

I think I've seen CD's sold in many unlikely places all over the world: coffee shops, flea markets, thrift stores, street corners, mercados--some are authentic and some are pirate versions. One thing they have in common is that CD's are popular!

A voir comme cela, je le prennais pour un petit kiosque sympathique de livres. En Paris , on trouve des fois au marches aux puces des vendeurs a la sauvette de CD Pirates.

It's a bit like Fairtrade - you need to think a bit further back down the supply line than what you see on the shelf/rack.

UK Trading Standards officers make the point that sales of pirated CDs and DVDs often go to fund organised crime networks.

You pays your money and you takes your choice.

I haven't bought a CD in a long time. I do often buy online through iTunes, but also check out a lot of CDs from the library! They are free!

curly – bare in mind that tuzla is in balkans =)

kate – yes they’re very popular, great business for everyone hehe

olivier – no city is spared of the pirates it seems

banyamin – no one is spared =)

kris – yeah on the street, just like that.

tanty =)

selana – we should supply you with umbrellas =)

keropok – didn’t expect that, how convenient (joking) =)

oven – i agree with you totally but i have to add that these kind of “businesses” in Tuzla are mostly run by ordinary people, mostly young people who copy music at home and try to make a bit of money for themselves.
when you realize that unemployment is running at 40% at the moment and that is especially hard for young people to find a job than in that case one can’t really judge them for trying to make their way out.

sarah – glad you mentioned library, great way to get music, i did that a few times =)

stefan – i heard a story about it, obviously pirates in bosnia are not as sophisticated as the Swedish Pirate(s)Bay =)

thank you all for your amiable comments.
