The mute Bosnian muezzin


No matter where you look here in Sarajevo, you can spot a minaret and its mosque. In front of my hotel window there's the first one, heading down to the Bascarsija bazaar, just a two minute walk, there're at least another four or five, and when you're down in the city center and turn 360 degrees looking up to the surrounding hills, they're everywhere. Amazing. Only the muezzins seem to be less vocal than in other Muslim countries -- maybe out of respect for the other religions?
