Tuesday was basically an all class day at the RIT Zagreb campus. Rob gave us more details on our final presentations and paper due later in the week.
Wednesday, we didn’t have class but we still had to go the campus for a conference call. The study abroad office wanted our input on how the trip could be improved for next year. I told them about the bed bugs in Pag and the Wi-Fi situation.
After the conference call, Brooke, Allie and I had time to shop. City center has a huge H&M three floors high we went to. I actually got lost and separated from the two for a little bit amiss the racks and racks of clothing.
Five o’clock Stasa had us go to a cute little restaurant for an assignment: to taste orange wine. No, the wine isn’t actually made from oranges despite the name. It gets its orange color from being buried underground for a couple months in a wooden box. The wine was very dry and had earthy notes. After we tasted the wine, they gave us all free shots.
Dinner was at a place called Boban famous for its homemade pasta. I ordered penne with a cream sauce, chicken, bacon, and mushrooms that tasted amazing. Stasa told us about life during the war and the terrible tragedies he and his family had to endure.
After dinner, all of us hung out in Brooke and Allie’s room playing cards and drinking jug wine.
