ROMAN LIGHT
I took a bus to Pula, and discovered the Istrian countryside. Didn't impress me much. Neither the little towns that i saw. Really close to Rovigno, i was there in 45 min and 32 Kunas. With my Garmin i new i was just some blocks away from the Roman Amphitheater, which being built in times of the great Augustus, is one of the oldest in the world. Claudius and Vespasian followed the works and was finished by Emperor Titus. As i walked around the Arena i thought about the mighty gladiators, the suffering and the glory of the first century A.D. I visited also the museum and learn about the Amphorae and their use in keeping wine and Olive oil.

With just a little time left i wondered around Pula's main street where a lot of nice restaurants and baroque buildings. I also saw the Arch of the Sergii, one of the remaining gates build by the romans and the Temple of Augustus in the actual forum. I knew since i visited the Arena that the Pula Film Festival was on and i discovered later that there were also projections at the Valli theater. I saw Panorama a croatian thriller and enjoyed a lot. Before the film the director and the main actress presented their work. Didn't understand one word. At 7 pm i took my bus to Rovigno.
