In every class of every school there are students, who are excellent; there are good ones and ones with average performance; there are also bad student and ones that are so bad they have to take the same class twice; but there are also ones, who do not like anything and anyone.
The case with the class of countries, which want to become part of the EU, is quite similar. For Macedonia, the natural words that come to mind are a standard bad student, causing scandals, ready to generate problems and conflicts, just so it can prove itself worthy.
The former Yugoslav republic is constantly trying to deepen its problems and to touch and poison everything that surrounds it, instead of walking forward in its development and progress, and trying to retain its fragile internal ethnical balance.

Bosnian has a distinctive lifestyle, caught by the words 'sabur' ('take it slow') and 'bujrum' (''you are most welcome').
Ramadan is the most significant time for every muslim. Muslims across Europe are marking the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which falls in July and August this year, and Bosnia is the best place to "be" muslim in Europe, at least during Ramadan, because when You are on bosnian streets or in café you will have feeling that you are in some European and Middle East city at the same time.

Dario Džamonja, whom many knew as Daco, was a well-known writer in Sarajevo. He was also my step-brother. Our father was Vlatko Džamonja, a tenor in the Sarajevo Opera. He had Dario in his first marriage, with Ljepša, and then, eleven years later, he had me in his marriage with Dženana Ku?ukali?. We did not grow up together and my memories of him before my age about 14, are almost non-existent. I knew he existed but I really learned about him and about a few other things the one and the same night, when I found the "forbidden" (forbidden to me) book "Pri?e iz moje ulice" (Stories from my street) that he had published some years before.

Save You stand among the crowds in a world museum like the Louvre in Paris, moving from one hall to another gazing at pieces of art such as the Mona Lisa, trying to understand the secret of that mysterious smile on the face of the Italian La Gioconda ... well, you are not alone! Many people in this world are attracted by the various types of "culture" and are joined together in appreciating its beauty. Culture is a meeting point for peoples and civilisations. It is for everyone — not just for certain groups, cities or the elite. Culture brings us together at a time when politics and economics force us apart.
If all the bread in Paris is French, the collections of the Louvre remain universal. In a joint American-Dutch study, researchers found that the secret of the mysterious half smile of the Mona Lisa lies in the happiness of the lady in the portrait at that time. Despite the many theories and arguments around that picture, five centuries after it was painted, the woman still distributes her smiles to everybody. The 30-inch -high portrait still attracts and draws together millions of people from all walks of life.
