Little Bosnia

We have a substantial Bosnian population in The Lou. It's are one of the main places refugees were resettled after the Balkan wars. They have added something special to the culture of the region and have been on the blog before, like the Bosnia - Argentina soccer match at the baseball stadium a year and a half ago.

The community is centered on the south side around the Bevo Mill, more about which soon. There was a little Taste of Bosnia festival there last Sunday. Well, two food carts but lots of enthusiasm. But when the band stopped playing American pop music and struck up Bosnian dance tunes - well, how do you say let the good times roll in Bosnian?

Looks like a heck of a lot of enthusiasm expended by this group of Bosnians Bob, good on them!

Terrific shots! I have no idea how large the populations here would be of people from the former Yugoslavia.

Oh well with that kind of music, who wouldn't want to dance?

Glad they enjoy their new life in the US. Lots of refugees from that war living in Sweden today as well.
