On my way home from work yesterday this scene took my eye. This cat looked so cute while trying to find its way in the house.
I am taking this opportunity to say that this house is one of very old Bosnian’s houses. God know when it was built. I’ve never seen anybody from that hose. This one isn’t nice but its little windows are interesting. Little window is called “kapidžik” and the wooden bars are “mušepci” for watching. Once upon a time love idylls for flirting (it is said “ašikovanje”) were taking place by those little windows; a girl is talking with her boyfriend through that “kapidžik” while he is standing in the street.
Old people always were careful when build or sell houses so all this reminded me to an old story that I heard long ago. Story says about a man who wanted to sell his house for the price of 300 ducats’. Buyers noticed that the house was too expensive and that it wasn’t worth more then 100 ducats. The owner replied to him: “The house really isn’t worth more then 100 ducats’ but its left neighbor worth 100 ducats and its right neighbor worth 100 ducats, so it is 300 ducats in total.
Well, I think it really is important what neighborhood we live in and who lives next to our door.
