Day Nine: Dubrovnik, Croatia

I have tried three times now to get this posted. Hopefully this time is the charm.

We spent Friday, our ninth day, in Dubrovnik, the jewel of the Croatian Riviera -- and ECC was well-represented! 

We made our final school visit to the University of Dubrovnik. The community college administrator and instructors were fascinated to learn that there are no community colleges in Croatia. Students either follow a college path or a career path at high school. A full college degree takes only three years.

Pictured below with me are Dr. Delores Parker, retired senior vice president and chief academic officer at the NC Community College System; John Preusser, history instructor at James Sprunt CC; Limdley Swift, English instructor at Guilford Technical CC; Abbe Stone, history and political science instructor, Sandhills Community College; Dr. Neil Bolick, World View; and Dr. Jacqueline Olich, associate director of the Center for Slavic, Eurasian, and Eastern European Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill. (Those are my ECC sunglasses in the picture.)

After our visit to the college, we went headed toward the Old City, enclosed in ancient Roman walls. The towers were featured in Game of Thrones.

Once inside the walls in Old Town, we saw three churches and many shops we visited after lunch! 
We even saw the city that rose up across the isthmus from the old city. 

After an afternoon of shopping, some of us went down to Lapad Beach, dipped our feet in the Adriatic Sea, and watched a glorious sunset. 

It was a great day in Dubrovnik!
