Brcko district Visit: 2008-4
2008-07-31 - Since I was driving around BiH I just had to go and see what Brcko was like. Neither/both in the Republik Srpska or/and the Federation of Bosnia Hercegovina, this was the last sticking point of the peace process coming out of Dayton that got solved by a curious sort of fudge. These days BiH's entities aren't at war and indeed it's hard to tell when one crosses between them apart from the greater use of Serbian Cyrillic in the RS. Brcko uses both alphabets in parallel.

As a town it is pleasant enough with a grand old Austro Hungarian hotel that's been totally rebuilt next to a lovely but falling-down Moorish style art gallery on the central square. A great long bridge crosses the border to Croatia directly beyond that point.




Tripura Visit: 2006-12
2008-07-31 - I took the alternative route between Shillong and Agartala via Cherapungee and across Bangladesh which meant avoiding the most dangerous sections but does obviously require a Bangladesh visa and the annoying exit tax that one can not pay at the border (pre pay in a bank in the nearest town!)

I agree with Jorge about the great Mizo people and his attitude to how to visit.
