Day 1 - First Exploration of Zegreb

After quickly settling into our room we decided to wander out to check out our neighbourhood and find lunch. It was raining cats and dogs and was only 11C.   The hotel is situated just below the old city and is adjacent to a large square with many, many restaurants, florists and shops. When we inquired about the menu at one restaurant the waiter told us their kitchen was closed on Mondays. He then recommended his favourite "local" restaurant where we would find more citizens of Zegrab than tourists, Vallis Aurea. It was situated in a small out of the way street just below the venicular that took people to the  old city.  We lapped up some smoked Ox tongue and shared a salad accompanied by local white wine. Overall a pleasant experience and only $20!

After lunch, jet lag naps were enjoyed followed by another journey out for food. The Korcula restaurant (in Zegrab) was a short walk in the rain. We had risotto with truffles and octopus with potatoes. Monica found the fried herb potatoes rival to any North American French Fries and didn't care to share her bounty with Joe. We shared a white wine from the island of Korcula which we will be going to in a week. Overall a pleasant experience.
