74/365: Danjela

They'd dealt with food shortages and power outages, gunfire and mortars in the streets, and just when they thought it couldn't get worse, they started conscripting young girls. A family friend led her and her sister to a small waterlogged tunnel and told them to run to the other side. That's the beginning of the story of how she left Sarajevo to come to Canada, and I was reminded of it just now because of Christine's pictures today.

Danjela has a really awesome sense of style that I don't think anyone else would be able to pull off.
