Anatomy of a Mostar Bridge Jump

In Mostar, there is the Stari Most which was the old bridge that connected the two parts of the old town, thus the name, due to ‘most’ meaning ‘bridge’. Yeah, I know, not very creative, but it works.

Anyways, a sport the kids do these days is to jump off the bridge and in to the Neretva River below, which is apparently freezing cold. They don’t just do it for fun though and two of them will work the tourists to make a bit of money. One does the hustle and the other does the jump. I don’t know how much they make, but I didn’t have too much of a problem giving the kid two Konvertible Marks for the performance.

So, here you see it. He set up, then leans out and makes the plunge. It only takes a couple of seconds and as soon as he is in that water below, we gets out as fast as he can. A bit later, you’ll see him back up on top, shivering, ready to do it again.
