Vocabulary lesson

There are just some days when you really, finally, down-to-your-toes, know what it means to be





and you look at the people you know and the people you just pass by on the street, and you wonder
How can it be that we are all human?
How can those people, those normal-seeming people walking around just like me, have their heads full of such nonsense?
And then you remember, Human is just a name for a species. Nothing about that means we're going to like each other.

Side trip to the interior

 Well, you're never far from the coast in southern Croatia.

Quick tour of the old city - this was our organized day trip. It takes them so long to get everyone together and on the bus & etc & etc that the guide then zips you around, check, check, check, and you have ten minutes to actually look at what interests you before it's back to the bus. Will return later for a wander around.

For playing water polo. At Cavtat there was one set up in the port, just across the quay from the fishing boat dock. And I saw guys using them, too, just some one-on-one.

Stray cats everywhere, but nice, well-fed ones.
