Wheels on the bus go round & round

Today we escaped the heat by busing it between Dubrovnik & Split. The thermometer was saying 30 when we left & it was muggy. The bus started out a bit like normal bus but the other side of the Bosnian border it became more like a Transperth bus stopping at random stops picking up locals who seemed really happy about sharing the bus with tourists...Not! The views were great, winding round mountains not so great, hanging for a straight road. I did notice wine stops so I assume the Croatians stop for wine like we’ld stop for coffee.

Our apartment is kinda cool, it’s in the Golden Gate the biggest & grandest of the Split city gates. There’s this little door in the side a bit Alice in Wonderlandy really, up some stairs & we’ve got a little one bedroom apartment.

We ducked our for a quick look & some food, I decided to be brave something different can’t go wrong two nights in a row (let’s just say I won’t be having black risotto with cuttlefish again) and I was right. We tried a traditional meal of beef & potato dumplings, very nice.

While roaming the alleys we stumbled across not one but two weddings, what a fan fair in this little square. There was bands walking round playing, someone carrying the Croatian flag, dancing, singing & one topped it off with some flares. I actually think they may be playing again outside our window.
