Croatia Pictures (as promised)

This is the beautiful town of Trogir. David had to do a little convincing to get me to agree to riding a scooter 40 minutes on the highway in order to get to Trogir, but we arrived safely and had a good time exploring. We even had time to take the scooter into the hilly countryside where we found a cute little chapel. Unfortunately, as a result of all that riding I couldn't walk properly for the rest of the holiday.

This is the courtyard of an old monastery in Dubrovnik. I think it's 14th or 15th century. Eitherway, it kind of reminded me of a Hilton resort...that "Old World" feel that landscape designers charge millions of dollars to achieve. Amateurs.

The beautiful Tower Clock in Dubrovnik. I think it's special/historical for some reason or other, but we never got the story. What can you do?

The Dubrovnik City Harbor. The site of a massive bombing during the 1991-95 war. Apparently, most of the Old City was damaged, if not destroyed. Quite sad. I don't know the whole story, but I bought a book on it and can tell you all about it at a later date.

OHHHH I am so jealous. Crotia is one of my dream are so lucky...send more pictures.

And yes, I often fear that I actually have eaten a cockroach at night. At least I have never found a wing on my lips or had roach breath in the morning...
