... day trip to Pula. We wove through windy roads amidst olive fields and grapevines. Istria is the name of this region and its known for both its wine and olive oil.
The day was sunny and warm in early December and we got some great photos of the amphitheater. There's a $8 charge to get in, but you actually get better views from walking around outside. The views are unobstructed, so we ...
... up towards St. Euphemia church, at the top of the hill on this small peninsula. Every now and then you can peek out and see an alley that leads to the sea where a boat can park. It rained the first night we arrived but we didn't mind. It was the sea.

Overall, it was a very interesting (albeit long and tiring) day.
