There are some lovely shops selling handicrafts and (some) cheesy souvenirs, but the shopkeepers are remarkably laid back. Perhaps this was more noticeable after the high pressure selling in Turkey, but we were able to browse through the shops without being hassled. It was rather nice. There is a lovely shop inside one of the mosque complexes that sells authentic Bosniak handicrafts. The man insisted that it was all made by his family, some of it up to 50 years ago. Very nice and I had intended to go back and but something for Jess but it was closed by the time I got there
We tried to visit the two museums in Mostar, but one of them is closed all winter and the other is only open 3 hours a day and closed on Mondays so unfortunately was closed for the entire time we were here.
There were gypsies in Mostar (as there were in Sarajevo) but they were quite polite, moving on if you showed no interest.
Weather wide it was a funny day, with sunny periods but rain as well. Towards the end of the day it turned quite cold. We decided to buy some treats for dinner in our apartment rather than go out again.
On to Dubrovnik tomorrow.
