dubrovnik

sleepy town in croatia

Yeekei, Frieska, Lim, and I caught a flight to the coastal Croatian town of Dubrovnik.

Within a few hours, we had determined that it was a friendly little town. Extremely pretty, and extremly boring - just plenty of tourists, a bakery, a bar, a million tourists and nasty overpriced restaurants to service them.

The town is architecturally amazing, although it was badly bombed during the 90's (Croatia war of independance) and much of what meets the eye is new old building.

On our first night we took plenty of snaps, and then had a quick drink.

The following day we figured out all there was to do in this town was practice our photography - so enjoy! (this is only a handful of many, many, painstakingly* gathered photos)

The only suprising thing about this town was the ghetto tags by some bored youth - [s]he obviously just couldn't stand another pretty, quaint, perfectly painted building.. (these tags found in many places over the town)

Finally, Sunday afternoon came along and we happily shot back to busy London. Dubvronik.. well.. maybe in another 40 years it'll be just fine..

Thats it for now, pie man out for now.
