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.

Hose on a green grass

For the hosepipe we say slauf pronounced shlauph. How do you say it in your language other than a hose in English?

hosepipe [all one word] or garden hose are the only expressions used around here.

In spoken Bosnian we say...crijevo.
What a beautiful word...it sounds so genuine...say no to schlauf...so no to foreign linguistic influences...

We call then a "garden hose" here where I live in Ohio. I never saw a blue one before. Mostly black, green, yellow or brown are the colors sold in stores.
