The beautiful old town of Dubrovnik, Croatia, looking out at the Adriatic Sea. Below is a longer
view in the same direction. See the pinkish wall, zig-zagging through the middle of this second
photo? You can walk around the whole town along the crest of that wall, which was my vantage point
for both pictures.

Chiloe,

I just arranged a trip for my boss and family for 3 days in Dubrovnic this summer, plus three weeks in various other areas throughout Croatia. What an amazing place! (Your photo is much more stunning than any that the Internet sites posted.) Any recommendations on unusual things to see or do?

Any recommendations on unusual things to see or do?

I wish we'd had a 3-week vacation there, but unfortunately I was in work mode and
just an accidental tourist. Dubrovnik certainly is charming, and deserves its World Heritage
Site status.

In 1991, after Croatia declared independence, Serbian and Montenegrin forces laid seige to the
city, firing artillery from the mountains in this picture. The mix of old (multicolored) and new
(solid orange) roof-tiles you see here reflects that destruction, and also Dubrovnik's
energetic rebuilding since the war.

You can see another segment of the city wall in this photo. If I just had a few hours in Dubrovnik,
I'd hike that again.

Here's one more slide from that trip, the village of Mali Ston. Climbing the mountain to its
right, you can see one segment of what is said to be the second-longest wall in Europe (second only
to Hadrian's Wall in Scotland).

"Delhi Dog's trout is either a golden or a golden/rainbow hybrid.

Scruffy, that's what I was thinking too, I wasn't positive so I went with the brookie. My hunch is that it's one of those lovely Sierra Goldens which have developed in the high lonesome after so many years of being cut off from other stock, though a rainbow high bred is more than likely...

Anyone got a positive ID on the little rascal. I know a place that has thousands of his brothers and sisters.

Here's a couplemore shots just to bump this thread along.



Gulamrg, Kashmir- Supposedly the highest gondola in the world...not sure about that. Tops out at 13,000ft though.
Probably less than 100 skiers and boarders there when we went a few weeks ago.

If this is random and odd, then I'd like to talk about my plumbing problem.

They had to replace the main, down the driveway and to the street...

All done, everything fine. They even finished the cement job, the sidewalk and curb. Just waiting for them to get the small bit of asphalt in the street...

Then Lana goes to use the back bathroom. Totally stopped up. Turns out the plumbers didn't figure in the line coming from the other bathroom, and the cut off the feed...

Tom says, just before we're leaving for the Valley, "Hey, did you know there was standing water in your driveway?"

Yeah, real funny...
