Croatia

13 Oct

Now that we’re in Italy I have been reflecting on our travels through Croatia. It’s a very clean country, you see little to no litter. The people appear not to be friendly with strangers but when you engage them they open up. Traveling thru the countryside we saw many dilapidated homes, these are remnants of the war of 20 years ago.
Once in Dubrovnik, the facts about the horrendous wrong done on the civilians while the whole world stood aside are very apparent. Dubrovnik was under siege for 7 months – 3 without any outside assistance – no water or food brought in. People had to survive just on what was in the town when they were shelled from the sea, air, and surrounding cliff. Croatias stubborn and proud, and they survived this atrocity. I understand why they are not immediately friendly to strangers.
