“Travels to a Different Time” : 25July1974: All Over Yugoslavia: Massive Confusion in Dubrovnik: Minimalist Camping! Existential Question of Where am I?

I woke up shortly after my Peugeot 404 friends did, Alex and Eckart. On the road at 09:00. We encountered a traffic jam in Titograd but it cleared up and we stopped at supermarket to buy some food for breakfast. Not eating dinner we all were starving. The incredible scenery continued. We arrived at the campsite but it was full. What is going on? Into Dubrovnik but there were no rooms and hundreds of tourists seemed to be arriving in a state of confusion. They were on their way to Greece but it seems the Yugoslav-Greek border is closed. So we tried another campground for 25 cents a night but no facilities other than a hose with cold water! It is near a small village with 15 homes a store and a restaurant. It has a beautiful beach. Dinner was a beer and some of that wonderful Dalmatian smoked ham on a bun! Where am I?
