First Visit to Montenegro

Monday we arrived in Kotor, Montenegro, which is situated in a collection of beautiful fjords and mountains. Though it was cloudy for a good part of the day, we had little rain. Our excursion took us via bus coach to Budva, where we saw the Medieval, walled city and then had lunch and swimming time on a nearby beach, one town away. The guide pointed out some of the similarities of her country, Montenegro to its neighbors, including a common language, Serbo-Croatian. What is known as ‘Montenegran’ is actually a dialect. The mountains are magnificent and Jim swam in the Adriatic. Monday evening, while the ‘dog tag tea dance’ party was going on (another of Jim’s favorite activities, Dan read a novel by Maeve Binchy). Our ship, the magnificent Celebrity Silhouette departed for Corfu, Greece --Dan
