Possible unexploded land mines? Yikes! I’m glad I only read this article after visiting!

Though I enjoyed a lovely afternoon in the park, due to the high concentration of tourists, I wouldn’t rent a car to get out there again.

I loved reminiscing about our wonderful day at Plitvice as I read this story! This is well written, which I appreciate after a career of teaching writing and now volunteer writing and editing three different culture newsletters on Asian and Southeast Asian arts and cultures in retirement in Thailand. I was especially grateful for the scientific information about karst landscapes. I hope everyone gets to Plitvice and enjoys nature’s pleasures as we did. Unforgettable!
