Yep. Funny story about that International Cafe where we stopped for pizza - there was a sign on the side that read "Serbian Christmas":

Since Neda is Croatian, we just had to investigate. Turns out the bar that's attached to the cafe is owned by a Serb and he hosts a Christmas party every year...

Haha, we passed that sign and had to double back because we were both down to a quarter tank and weren't going to make it! What a stupid place to put it!

Have fun! And if you're doing the Dalton in Aug/Sept, don't run Tourances in the mud!
