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.

Old kilim on a hot sunny day!

The red kilim is very bright, especially if it's old--it has held its colour well.

Well, there's a lot of historical allusions in that photo! Turkish kilims, the bridge, and I guess what is the national flag?

Beautiful story picture. Nice colors and I like the way the sunlight just touches the top of the kilim.

This picture has a much more "posed" feel than usual. Apart from the obvious historical-cultural elements is the context significant?

Beautiful picture: the red kilim is superb, the old Mostar bridge is amazing, and the Bosnia and Herzegovina flag is blue!

I heard there was a new mall opening on Irac, you should take pictures of that if you already haven't. That'd be cool...
