“Travels to a Different Time” : July 13, 1971: Murter, Yugoslavia: No Thanks to Croatian Hard Rock and the Miserable Flies

It is nice to know I am not the only hungry one in this travelling troupe. Mom woke me up saying I should get up as she was hungry! Yet more ham, cheese and rolls with Fructal cherry nectar. We were going on a long walk to what is supposed to be a good beach. It looks like in a couple of weeks we will be headed to Germany so beach time is becoming even more special for us. I used to hate salt water but it didn’t take me long to love it. I suppose we are beach bums. Mom was saying she couldn’t walk much longer so I stuck out my thumb and a Citroen stopped and a man gave us a lift to a crowded beach. He said he could drive us back home at 4. Nice guy. Beautiful warm and crystal-clear water and a sandy beach. He drove us back as promised and we all went out for a drink after. We had an early dinner and went to the theatre for a Vice Vikov concert but as it was hard rock Mom said she’d get a headache if she listened to his music so we headed home. Dinner for two $2.00.

July 14, 1971: Murter Yugoslavia

Woken up by a swarm of flies the monstrous annoying brutes. The buzzing is driving me nuts! Average cost of meal for two on Murter $2.60. People are the nicest in Yugoslavia. Accommodation is a real dump and swarming with flies.
