After lunch we made a stop at the incredible 2nd century amphitheater, the largest in the entire Balkans! As you can see it has not been completely excavated because-------there are houses built on top of it!! There would have been room for over 15,000 spectators- now that's HUGE! You can go down into the vaults to see where the gladiators waited and the pens where the lions were kept.
As we were driving from the north end of the city to the southern beach area we spotted this fellow on the side of the road, strumming a very lovely instrument. We made a u-turn back to him and stopped to see what he was selling. I thought they were ukeleles but we decided they weren't. Maybe they were lutes of some sort. Anyhow, B was delighted to buy one as a present for her son!
Here is P looking ultra terrific with the sun setting behind his head. We sat here and had pistachio and chocolate ice cream and cappucino's! Yum yum.
I truly felt like doing a happy dance several times throughout the day. I pinch myself to make certain I'm not dreaming. How lucky am I to live where I do! It's the beginning of March and I'm not covered in snow, but in the warm, gentle rays of the Meditteranean Sun. MMMM good!
