Sunny Pula.

After a few hours sleep we got up, packed our bags and headed for the train station to take the train to Pula on the Croatian coast.

It was, as usual, fun to see how the senery changed. It went from all green, to a more mediterranean look with brownish fields.

I liked this shot of the fence and the railway tracks for some reason..

After crossing into Croatia from Slovenia the earth got that nice, reddish brown colour. Isn't it pretty against the green vines?

Pula station - just on time, too!

Pula have quite a few remains from Roman times, like this amphitheatre. It's just smack in the middle of town. We'll probably go in there tomorrow. :)

This is the twin gates - used to be on the road leading to the Amphitheatre, but now it just led into some property. :)

Now it's getting chilly outside - where I found this wireless network - so I'll head inside before the mosquitoes eat me alive. They think I'm YUMMY. Sigh..

That Roman thing is cool. Like gladiators, huh? Watch out for those bugs eating you.

This was so interesting to me! We have red dirt in Louisiana where my parents live -- it is pretty. I am fascinated by the Roman ruins, so looking forward to more of you pics.
