“Travels to a Different Time” : July 2, 1971: Hvar: Yugoslavia: The 164 Steps and Two Letters from Fritz!

We disembarked with the gypsies at 4 in the afternoon and went to the tourist office to find a room. We were lucky to find a spotless room with a private bathroom and a balcony overlooking the Dalmatian Coast! One problem and that is we have to climb 164 steps to get to our pension. We went down the 164 steps to a restaurant where I had a greasy soup and Mom a glass of wine. We then went to the post office and picked up some mail. A letter from Barbara and two letters from Fritz! We then checked out a couple of restaurants but they were touristy and expensive. We eventually found a restaurant and Mom had calf’s liver and I had shish kebab. We went home up the 164 steps and Mom must have read Frtiz’s letters at least five times.
