Dubronik is where people from all over Europe want to go for beach-time, summer-time, and party-time, especially in August. So besides the fact that everything is a good 50% more expensive than it would be in July or September, it's also not surprising that the Friday and Saturday night promenade along the waterfront is something of a scene. Everybody else is decked out in dresses (women that is; the men are schlumps). If the people here are shoe crazy on a normal day, you can imagine what Saturday night looks like. One woman notices my Keen water sandals (see Shoes, Shoes Everywhere posting...) and gives me a dirty look. Lady, you're offended by my comfortable footwear? You're standing next to a woman who's 6 or 7 months pregnant, and chain smoking!
