Climbing on the tanks

The most recent war in Bosnia is so obvious that sometimes one forgets that Bosnia was occupied territory during World War II and has a robust World War II history with its own heroes and villains and thrilling resistance stories. A park in the center of town displays some World War II tanks and armaments.

Isaac and Eleanor love the park because no one bats an eye if they clamber all over the things. As Eleanor put it, "It's just like stuff in a hands-on museum in America except you can climb on it."

Love that they are allowed to climb. Because, really, if you put those tanks within climbing reach of a child and tell them, "Don't touch," it's torture for a kid. My kids would eat that up.
