Hi Harun,On the 16th of Juli my wife and i had a "times of misfortune" tour, you was our guide. We are Dutch, maybe you remember us. The bus was late and you bought us coffee. The tour was impressive. Thank you for that. Now i am back home, in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
I want to come back to Bosnië soon though, to visit Srebenica. To pay my respect and to commemorate.
The fact that the "safe area" Srebenica was "protected" by Dutch "peacekeepers" has a lot to do with this.

I took the tour with two friends and we were both very keen to learn more about the siege and what happened. Our guide (Adnan)was very interesting and informative and he really put the events into perspective. It was especially nice to be able to speak to people who had experienced the war, and to get first hand accounts, and to be able to ask questions. I would definitely recommend the tour! Thank you!
