I did see some Halloween stuff in Split in the stores – but none here in Hvar Town. It rained here today until mid afternoon so I read for about 5 hours. At least I’m reading a good book or I’d be in trouble. I’ve been fixated to the pages of Dog Soldiers by Robert Stone – about one drug transaction from Vietnam to the US in the 1970s. Of course, the whole thing went wrong. Just left a scene about doing heroin – yikes!

It is so beautiful here – but more on that later!
