Dubrovnik, Croatia

Approaching Dubrovnik we saw many red roofs. After the last war people were requested to put red roofs on their buildings as a sign of the damage done.
Beautiful cliffs along the coast approaching Dubrovnik.

The old church of Old Dubrovnik. Recently it was discovered that there were two other churches below this one. They just build on top of each of them throughout the years.

One of the main streets through Old Dubrovnik.

Street madrigals.

Dried figs strung on string at the market place. We bought figs and dried orange peel. They were both very good and would have been lovely with a cup of tea.

A typical dress of Old Dubrovnik.

Just off the coast of Dubrovnik was a little island, which we also visited. It supposedly had a curse on it; so no one lived there anymore. The beach was beautiful and it had a botanical gardens. The botanical gardens had a collection of citrus and cactus plants.

Such a beautiful and peaceful looking place, Marilyn. It's hard to imagine that less than ten years ago such a terrible war was going on there.
