We don’t mention that name

I’m sure all of your recognized the famous words of Lefty Ruggiero ( brilliantly portrayed by Al Pacino)  and you’re now wondering how am I going to use that to open a post in a photography blog… Well, wonder no more!

As you all are probably aware of, there are words that mean completely different things in different languages. And I am also sure that you already know of a certain city in Croatia that shares the name of the Botswanian  currency and that is a word that us Romanians use  in a multitude of ways

Today’s post has some pictures captured in the above mentioned city, in Croatia. I will talk more about Croatia in other posts, here are some post-worthy images that reflect my memories of Croatia:

How things are going in the Balkans  (especially Romania)

Tough to steer !

Don’t look at this cat when you are alone at night (and it’s raining with a thunderstorm)

Cat from Hell

And, I just have to end the picture series with the most beautiful beach, the one that you just should not miss while visiting Pula:

Whaaattt?  What do you mean this doesn't resemble your idea of a beautiful beach???

Since I had a month-long holiday, I feel the need to remind you all that IF you are interested in seeing more pictures from Croatia (and neighboring Hungary and Serbia), a good way to be sure not to miss when I post them is to subscribe to the blog.  It’s free, and you only get updates when I post something.

  1. You missed the very spirit of Lefty Ruggiero. By the number of f… he pronounced in the movie, I do not think the name of the Croatian city is a word he would have wanted to avoid mentioning …

    Did you like the people in Croatia?

  2. Interesting opinion on Lefty mentioning THAT name…
    As about people in Croatia, I found that, in average they resembled people in Romania – which translates to mediocre tourist services, hotel staff that is not exactly helpful, waiters that are very slow and unreceptive, etc.
    Of course there are exceptions, but that’s the impression I got. Much better than the people in Serbia on the other hand…

    One more thing, on the good side: in the country side, villages look more like Austria than Romania – nice, organized, neat, etc. This could prove that the people in Croatia are a bit smarter than us…

  3. Smarter – maybe, if you think so. Did they not start a war few years ago? I wonder how smart that was… Maybe all this niceness and organization and neatness has a price, I don’t know if it is afordable. But if you felt that tourism is not so much greater than the Romanian version, I wonder what is the use of them being smarter. Maybe they are not so much smarter after all …
