Montenegro! Where it is.
The former Yugoslavia has splintered into seven independent nations: Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, Macedonia, and the two newest ones, Kosovo, and Montenegro. David had a business trip to Montenegro, so we tagged along.
Luckily the people bringing David to Montenegro sent a professional driver. We took the highway linking the two capitals, Sarajevo and Podgorica, but even though it's the main arterial, it dwindles as it winds through the mountains until it is a one-lane, dirt road. On the edge of a cliff. With a bus coming the opposite direction at the moment we approached. Since I wasn't driving, I just squeezed my eyes shut and held my breath.
So, no photos of the drive there. But we and our driver arrived intact.
