Where I stayed
I ask Nikolo, the genial young Serb at the reception desk, where things stand among the peoples of the former Yugoslavia now, with the war twenty years in the past. He has lived in Kotor with his wife for six years now and their daughter was born here a year ago. 'People need to cooperate with each other. We are such small countries. We say "Forget, but do not forgive," and go about our business.'
I spend a couple of hours reading on the terrace before heading into Kotor to explore the tangle of its Stari Grad one last time
Dinner at Galion again as thick cumulous clouds swallow the tops of the mountains bringing a change of weather to Kotor. With the pier to myself, I polish off a good octopus salad and a plate of sea bass and grilled vegetables to the accompaniment of Brayan Ferry's version of 'Jealous Guy' and 10cc's 'I'm Not in love.' a cab back to Palazzo Radomiri to watch the dusk settle over the bay and the lights come on in the houses across the water.
