What makes Banja Luka so special...

#1
Received the following yesterday from BL.

I had intended doing a lot of serious work yesterday.

I still haven’t got round to it :)

(Apparently, girls in BL now outnumber blokes 7 -to- 1 . . . . )

Oh! The music’s good too, although I have no idea what they are on about =|

Beautiful girls passing through town

The beauty of nature and the natural beauties make Banja Luka so special...

I have a flat (well rent one) in Banja Luka and have been there since 2001 (although the last 5 or so years I have mainly been in sandy fucktard places). I like Banja Luka for many reasons and that is one of them.

**** swimming in that river though, its full of shit.

Can I come and stay at yours?

I was at Banja Luka for 2 years. ******* loved it and always swore I'd go back.

In fact I'd go as far as to say that EM visited me there.

<Poff> Hey, D_L why are you ******* about here at BLMF where your job is to drive water to hilltop rebro sites? Are you not sick of working 6 hr days, pocketing only £500 a week? Are you not sick of your hundreds of drunken friends with whom you get take refreshments each evening, spending five or six pounds getting ratted? Are you not sick of all the free cookhouse food? Are you not tired of the 40 degree heat? A man of your calibre only being granted 6 weeks leave a year, 8 96 hr passes to Zagreb and only 8 adventure training weekends on the Adriatic? You are destined for greater things, surely?

Cash in thy savings and use them to become the man you want to be. A pornographer, perhaps? Seek thy fortune.

Good thinking, EM!

Bwa ha ha.

Ah, it was the lovely Tanya behind the bar in my time - G&T served in pint glasses and mess parties that beggared belief...happy days (although some mornings were a touch shoddy).

You must have been there a bit after me. It was like something out of The Great Escape in '00-'01.

There was officially a 2 can rule in place but the Canadian RSM from PPCLI ( I think he was a stab) spent a lot of time waving his stick and threatening to shut the bars... and generally achieved **** all but a red face.

Ah yes....I had many an altercation with that chap.

You would have been there same time as me then. KORBR had their own (quite shite) bar and the CSM didn't want anyone going anywhere else. He'd also be in there most nights so that made it a bit extra shite.

Spent most of the time in the EFI or the little dutch coffee place next to the cookhouse where they thought that squirty cream on coffee made it a cappuccino

Which one? There was a Windsor Davis type character there to begin with who was pretty mellow, then there was Penfold who did try to do discipline, bless him.

He just didn't understand that with Brits and Alcohol you just have to turn a blind eye.

It's really very simple.

I give them money.

A lot of money.

Can I really come and stay at yours?
Ah, well I don't have a lot of money :(

Of course you can, but the only problem is that I am in the sandy shithole most of the time, so you will probably be staying there on your own, which you may or may not prefer. I just have to organise the key (oh and get the AC fixed).

I'm actually serious. I've ALWAYS wanted to go back to Bosnia, but just never got round to it.

I'd need someone to go on the piss with though.

You can't go to Bosnia and not go on the piss.

What you doing, private security?

Penfold, or the Sherriff. God knows what he thought he was, but he was always trying to bollock me for parking in places. He would always say "you can't park there", to which I replied why not? He said, because its a no parking zone, to which I replied, where are the signs...and walk off. That went on week in and week out and the twunt never put any signs up.

One day he stopped me as I was about to drive off saying he was fed up with me parking in places I shouldn't and he wanted my boss to turn up in his office at 9 or something the next day. I replied I don't think that will happen, if you want to see him, you will have to go to him. A LtCol isn't going to come to see some jumped up RSM .....and I drove off leaving him standing there (much to the shock of my wench passenger).

Good times.

Well, if you want someone to go on the piss with whilst there, you will have to wait until I am back then...in about 3 months.

No, I wish.....I am not even allowed off camp these days (although I do sneak off now and again). I do radio comms at the moment.
