What a day and its only 4:20pm here. So this morning i woke up. It seems somehow my alarm clock was about 30 minutes behind so i missed breakfast. Off to the bus station. At the bus station i met Tina who stayed at the same hostel, we had a nice quick chat. I thought i was leaving from gate 33, Tina said something about 22 as i left the cafe, i did not see a 22 anywhere on my ticket(it was there..duhhh) so i went to gate 33, about 10 minutes past departure i went to the ticket window because no bus ever came to that gate. Well 22 is where i should have been. Fortunately there was another bus in 20 minutes. No big deal. So i am on the bus and as we pull into this town i thought i saw a sign for Sibenik, get off the bus ask for my bag. I am not quite there yet. Back on the bus. 10 minutes later we are there. I was approached by one of the locals who was offering a room. I asked him if the room is in the center, "yes". The price was right. So we walked and walked, i asked how much further, 5 minutes, we walked some more, "are we almost there", oh yes. Meanwhile the rain begins, hard! Eventually we got there and the room was dirty nasty, stinking. I told him "no thanks". He asked "why?", being the nice guy i am, i said it was too far from town. So back to the waterfront, of course i get lost. Its still raining hard and im too cheap to buy an umbrella, perhaps i should. I got to the booking agency, the guy was so glad to see me and help(Not!), but i did get an nice clean reasonable room for only $10.00 more than the other room. And the address of the room is "13", how appropriate. So i am here in this town to see Krka National Park. Looks like it is supposed to rain for a couple of days. Jeeez! Since i am here i may as well check out Sibenik, Its still raining, so thats why i am at the internet cafe. Great deal, free as long as you are consuming something. Jedan, Karlovačko, hvala.(one more beer please!)

Ciao,

Chuck

Gotta hate that
Don't you hate it when other people are right? When the guy asked why you didn't want his room; you should have said in a heavy southern accent 'because I don't like being greened'.
