Breaking News from Split

Split, Croatia:

After the walking tour, I hit the town. Here's what I bought:

--business skirt
--formal dress
--casual dress
--skinny jeans

All of this for only 120 USD. All of this was on major sale of course, but still!!! I finally have clothes!

Afterward, I went into the local theatre and asked when the next show of whatever would be. The man told me there was a ballet going on right now. It only took seconds before he just told me to go to the second level. That's right, I got in for free. The ballet had began only 15 minutes before I arrived. I saw Zorba. It didn't make sense until the last scene when that famous song came on. You know, the one they play throughout "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". There was no sign of a pointe shoe or tutu anywhere. Only long black dresses for the ladies and black zapato with a low heel and high ankles.

The plot was difficult to follow and there were three encores. Yes, the performers came out three more times to take a bow.

This ballet was unique and not what I was expecting at all, but it lacked a good view of the orchestra and a Franklin friend. For this, I have to say I enjoyed the Serbian ballet more. (This has nothing to do with the fact that the Serbians allign themselves with the Russians...)
