Our room has lockers that you can put your bag in, but most people just leave them out (likely with their passports inside). The backpacking community is pretty trusting, but I still lock mine.
After showering and feeling much better, I explored Dubrovnik. I climbed the stairs to Fort Lovrijenac which has some great view of the Old Town. It was built in the 11th century, and cost about 30 kuna ($5) to get in. So far Dubrovnik isn’t as expensive as I thought.
After the fort, I sat down and sketched a bit. I brought a small moleskin notebook and decided sketching some of the places I see would be a fun thing to do. No pictures for that yet until I get better…I did grab some pizza which was my first real meal in a while.
I followed the pizza with a visit to a grocery store. I went to buy some fruit, but didn’t realize you had to weigh it and print out a barcode before you get to the register. So after waiting in line, I went back and weighed the kiwi and banana. The girl was really nice about it – I’m sure a lot of Americans make that mistake.
Funny enough, I made this same mistake in Lucerne, Switzerland three years ago – you think I’d learn!I ended up walking around the city walls and then getting some more pictures. I originally planned to do that tomorrow, but I had some extra time and wanted to get some pictures with the sun setting.
Finally, I got some ice cream (hazelnut and banana) then got some pictures of the harbor once the sun set.
I’m so tired writing this that I close my eyes while typing and then fall asleep for 10 minutes before I wake back up. I’m going to catch up on some sleep – hopefully should have another post and more pictures tomorrow.
