So this is a story that happened about 4 years ago and I never realized how interesting of an experience it was until recently as I've told friends about it. I was very new to "going out" back then, especially outside of the U.S., so I took advantage of my weekend in Sarajevo and met up with one of my family friends who was a local in the city.

Twenty-one. What an age! By far the most exciting birthday as a young person living in the United States. Naturally, I wanted to go all out and celebrate by living as luxuriously as I could on a college students budget.
