    I spent about 8 months in Bosnia working out of the Brco area and patrolling as far south as Tuzla and occasionally to Sarajevo.

    It's one of the few places I'd actually like to go see again.

    My brother & I rode here in 1988 and my wife & I rode back in 2008.
    Batopilas Mexico at the end of the road and at the bottom of Copper Canyon. We had to hike to the church in 1988 but there was a gravel road to it in 2008. Trip in 1988 was on a XR500, 2008 was a BMW GSA.

    Current pictures were taken 12 January, 2014.


    The PNC Bank in Leonardtown, MD. The first pic was taken circa 1930. It was originally the First National Bank of St. Mary's, built in 1921. An addition was added in 1966. It was still in operation until July of last year (2013), when PNC restructured and closed this branch.

    First pic probably from the 1940's

    Second pic from last Sunday.

    I had gone to the current fire hall and the pics were not matching at all. I had thought the building may have been rebuilt. I was standing across the street when a guy walks out of the fire hall so I go ask him if this is still the same fire hall that was used in the '40's. He tells me no, and then tells me all about the history of the building(s) and where they all used to be. He then told me that the building I was looking for was just up the street and said "Hop in, I'll take you there." WooHoo! We jumped in the fire chiefs pick up and he took me to the the place in the pic, which is now the current Knights Of Columbus building. Really good guy. He then tells me that before they used this building, they were located in a barn......challenge?

    The Mercado Pino Suarez public market seems much the same, including the juice bar on the corner, but the other shops have changed, and the Hotel Teresa in the background is gone. <o:p></o:p>

    The area around the Mercado Hidalgo market has a different feel to it (why hide such a lovely building behind a tall hedge?) but the market hall - over 100 years old - is still the same. <o:p></o:p>
