We were signed up for a sea kayaking tour which began at the gate of the walled city.
After paddling back we entered the gate of the Walled City and stopped by the internet cafe, so my son could get his fix. We bought our tickets to walk the wall and started climbing steps. After a morning of paddling and swimming, those steps were a challenge. It was hot and dry and the sky was a brilliant clear blue. There was not a speck of litter anywhere. The views grew better and better the higher we climbed. We ate ice cream and watched the tourists go by.
The Croatian people were timid but kind. I bought a hand made embroidered lace table cloth from a woman on the street. She set out two or three tray tables from her home and laid out her work. She held a paper and pencil and a cheat sheet to convert to various dollars around the world. They don't use the Euro here. I paid less than $15 for that gorgeous tablecloth. She was very grateful.
