Pocitelj, Herzegovina

We stopped in the Medieval town of Pocitelj which ten years ago was vacant. Now people have discovered that it has tourist dollar potential and others are trying to get it classified as a UNESCO world heritage site. We bought some fruit we've never seen before, served in a paper cone.

There is a watch tower at the top of a cliff, which two of us climbed.

These two.

This roof is seriously rotten, so we didn't linger too long.

There is a great view at the top though. Beyond the mountains in the background is the Mediterranean Sea. At the top we met a woman who begged us for a bandaid. Fortunately I had one for her, and she claimed that I had saved her life. So it was well worth the effort of climbing all those steps.
