She led us to the bus which will be our home for a week, and introduced us to the bus driver, name unintelligible, and off the the hotel.
Arrived there at one. Five star, centrally located.
Impressive lobby, and tried to get organized. Chris and I got a beautiful corner room, but we couldn't sign in until three.
So Deb Watrous wanted to find an ATM, and I joined her for a stroll with this object on a hot, humid afternoon, to kill the time until we could sign in. Found on, after passing an entrance to a lovely looking courtyard with some trees, tables chairs and beer. After getting the money, we stopped in, to find a new people in the shade, and a lovely waitress bringing drinks.
Enjoyed a local beer, about 16 oz for $3 (15 Kulas). Saw Kevin and Angela Greene, and Brian and Pat passing by and smugly waved them over. A friendly english speaking local offered to take our picture, and stayed for talk about her job, her recently deceased brother, great German medical attention he received, where were we from, etc. For an introduction to Zagreb, it was a winner. Back to the hotel, sign in, shower, and tring out the wireless and wrestling with this website. Not as easy as I thought.
Wrestle with travelpod, and learn some more. Bus leaves at seven for supper at nearby (a few blocks) at a brewery. We are dropped off a couple of blocks from it at the main theater,
and walk the rest of the way. Sit at three long trestle tables, all get the same meal of grilled sausage and chicken, mashed potaties, spicy baked beans, with dessert of some fruit strudle, large beer with meal, shot of local flavored brandy.
Back to the theater, the bus, the room and bed. It's been a long first day.
We met our tour guide, Ivana, at the airport.
