I remember the war, I was in the city for two year before escaping. Those two years were like 20 for me.

Kemal lives above the old Turkish town: Bašcaršija. His family escaped from Sarajevo when he was 11 years old, just after the tunnel under the airport was completed. He then lived in Italy where he learnt the language. He often is playing on-line games at the internet-café of the Zem Zem hostel, and there, during the summer, he rents rooms for the tourists that come to Sarajevo.
He is studying veterinary science and wants to find a job in his field. But he knows, that because of the corruption and the economical difficulties of BiH, it will not be easy.
