Two Halves ~ October 18, 2015

  • October 18, 2015
  • Day 41
  • Dubrovnik, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Split, Plitvice Lakes
  • 55-70 degrees, sunny

Two halves make a country. Croatia was divided into two parts as far back as the Ottoman Empire. From Dubrovnik to Split, you drive through a strip of Bosnia and Herzegovina. People have vivid memories of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina war in 1991-95. The three bus drivers fought. The hotel receptionist remembers the sound of bombs and having 24 hours to evacuate her home before it fell into enemy hands. I kept a low profile during the passport check point.
