Pretty sure I have a mild case of food poisoning. Could have been the cuttlefish, but I'm sure the lack of sleep, dehydration, and malnourishment hasn't helped. I'm still going to eat anyway today though. You know why? Because that's what champions do.
We spent the morning hanging around the hostel.
We then walked through and photographed Diocletian's Palace that integrates into Split's old town. Most ruins like this in Europe are pay-to-enter but what makes this unique is that's it's free to go into because throughout the alleys, churches, and plazas of the palace are restaurants, shops, and bars. It's like Florence, every single restaurant you see is open air and looks like it probably has the best food and the best time you'll ever have.
In the afternoon we walked to Marjan Park. On the peninsula of Split, the entire tip is a large park. We accidentely did the North side of the park first and got to see a part of Split where the middle class lives. The buildings are a little bit more cold and lack character like you'd expect in Eastern Europe, but they're without the trash and graffiti you'd find in maybe a Budapest. It was good to see this, because it would be like people coming to Los Angeles and judging it by only seeing Beverly Hills. It's a good part of town, but not the real LA.
On the South Side we climbed the steps and viewed the city from up high. We sat at a cafe on the hill overlooking the entire Dalmation Coast. Laetitia had a pina colada and I had an Aperol Spritz. A drink introduced to me in Italy and now a must when I'm in Europe.
We did another Geocaching and I found this film canister in a rock wall. For the record, we're now tied one to one.
For dinner we went to the front desk guy's favorite pizza place and then strolled back through the calm night.
