Why Bosnians seem unfriendly.
We met a guy who explained why people here are not very smiley and seem unfriendly. He said that people feel that incomers/tourists have a preconception about them, because of the atrocities committed during the war. They feel prejudged and convicted. He was particularly proud of his country and claimed that all Bosnians, what ever their culture or religion live happily together and are setting an example to the rest of Europe. The problem that caused the war was constructed by the bankers and politicians who for financial gain tried to keep the various ethnicities separated and weak. He said that Mostar is the only city in Europe where a lady or young girl could walk around the city at 3 am and not have any disrespectful comments directed at her.
