East West.

Sunset over the harbor at Vela Luka. Photo credit goes to Lydia, especially after I said it couldn't be done. We spent the night in Vela Luka in a modern hotel that featured such Po-Mo touches as a shower with glass walls and pull down shades; and a toilet without any door or wall or privacy at all. Western European concept, Eastern European execution. Modernist design can be dangerous in the wrong hands.
The old walled city of Korcula as we motor the short distance back to the mainland. Here is a lovely gem straight from Wikipedia about the old Korcula town: All of KorĨula's narrow streets are stepped with the notable exception of the street running alongside the southeastern wall. The street is called the Street of Thoughts as one did not have to worry about the steps.
