We finished the climb and explored the fortress ruins. On the way down we took a bit of an adventurous route. I felt a little like a soldier climbing down from the fortress in medieval times as I go down uneven paths and push through thorn bushes.
We took some time to wander around the city. I, of course, enjoyed the earrings and found a pair of porcelain earrings to represent Montenegro.
For lunch, we went to a restaurant on the bay. We were welcomed with Sljiva, or plum brandy. Dad has been talking about this drink a lot as he drank a lot of it when he visited Yugoslavia in the 80s (every place he went welcomed him with Sljiva, but he knows it as Slivowitz, because they were showing a different language then).
Back at the hostel, I spent the night meeting people and enjoying the hostel atmosphere. I love meeting new people while traveling hostels. People come from many different places that it's so interesting to meet them. I ate a traditional cake that has a vanilla cream filling. I loved it!
Nicole and I did a small brandy tasting before the night ended, since as you know, Montenegro is known for their brandy. We tried quince, pear and apricot. They were very strong! However, apricot was by far our favorite. It was fruity and delicious!
