A few observations on Croatia. The people are pretty nice, especially nice considering how many tourists they deal with on a daily basis. The food has been good, but pretty consistent with Mediterranean type food, so we haven't experienced the traditional Balkan food. We would have had to venture further inward than that. Dubrovnik was the only seaside destination that was hit by the war for independence. It is amazing that the walls we hiked on today were actually used for protection just a few years back. A lot of our waitresses in their twenties have braces. Don't know why this stood out to me! They eat spalado which is the same as gelato. I think it is funny that they rhyme. The salado is just as good as Italy's gelato.
Oh a couple funny things from today. We watched a lady come to the swimming rocks in a black bikini, and then as soon as she laid down she took the bottoms off and switched to identical white bottoms. We also had a very sassy waitress that seemed to mock whatever I said. Like I said I wanted a coke, and when she brought it said 'here's your coke' very snotty like my sister might have said back in the sybling rivalry days. I did not like her snideness!
Think that's it for now. Time for a sweaty ten minute walk to old town for dinner at a cheap pizzeria!
