    That is funny as when I was there they drank more than the Irish and that should mean something…
    Slivovitsch they called it , sort of wodka , drink it like water , not too healthy if used in copious amounts though
    That is a wonderful environment you are in there
    Enjoy your crackers and rice waffles hahaahha
    you will lose weight there
    so we have to fatten you up again once you return with pies and stews and the rest of it
    It is too healthy down there


    Yes well good luck to the locals with their Slivovitsch, as you know I’m not madly addicted to ‘drink’ but still, on holidays, one expects a little bit at least. Don’t think the relatives see this page, hope not, or I won’t be invited away again [t2712].   No I don’t think there’s any ulterior motive, just bad planning and timing, not stocking up when we have the opportunity and arriving in places far too late to find any restaurants.   I’ve started throwing out hints though ‘David I’m sure you could do with a beer after that long drive’ not exactly subtle. 

    Yesterday was very pleasant apart from the long drive as mentioned (Zadar to Dubrovnik via the Coast Road), madness really even though the view was beautiful until it became dark.  We visited another national park, KRKA, it was more accessible to Yukie with her painful legs, we didn’t do much of the area but still enjoyable. Pics are from my gifting there.  Some obvious, some less so/invisible.  Then to Trogir (pretty) where I left a few more pieces.

    We arrived in Dubrovnik rather late and tired so guess what our ‘dinner’ was?   A lovely sandwich I made with the same ‘ham’ and ‘cheese’ lovely fresh tomato,cucumber and lettuce.  This time I requested the hidden stock of chocolate and shortbread for the final touch.   Lucky we’d had a snack at lunchtime, in my case a truly horrible ‘kebab’ in a huge roll.   If you’re wondering about the ”s, it’s because neither cheese, ham, dinner or kebab bear much likeness to the real stuff.
