1st per in:| to Split this morning, saving ourselves a bus ride back over the mountain and a couple of hours of transit, but the weather wasn't cooperating, and anyway, it was a national holiday. (We looked everywhere for evidences of national holiday. We think that a "national holiday" here means you stay home and don't do anything if you possibly can.)
This mattered because even with a good connection in Split, the long and windy road down the Dalmatian coast takes about four hours without stops, and our bus stopped four times. The trip is gorgeous, even through a bus window.

1st per in:|and ratty looking. But when we engaged in one of the traveler's favorite tasks -- finding the laundromat and washing the dirties -- we were greeted by a lovely cheery washerwoman named Sjena (Shadow in Hrvastka, pronounced "Syena") and the local cat in charge, a charmer named Greta, who eventually allowed herself to be thoroughly skritched before bounding off to look statuesque in the sun on an unlikely perch where she really wasn't supposed to be.
Something about the clothes washing experience makes for delightful interactions. The technology here is superb, too, with spiffy microcomputer controlled laundromats. Makes for happy washerpeople, we guess. In any case, both Greta and Sanja & Rosie's Laundromat count as treasures in our book. |
