At night, after last call, the town quiets down, although because of the Roman marble everywhere the conversations of drunk partygoers on their way home echoes throughout the town. It’s a magical time.
There are two entrances in the walls of Dubrovnik, and one of them, by the old fishing marina, is where I go after last call in Dubrovnik. Out there, in the left side of the picture by the little dock people go and sunbathe on during the day, a couple of Croat guys plug a refrigerator into the side of the city and sell German beer all night next to the Adriatic Sea. If you continue past them, along the outside of the city alongside the wall the sidewalk turns into path, which turn into rocks you can climb on for a while, until the path melts into the sea. It feels a little like the end of the world.
That’s what I wrote this song about, that beautiful moment late at night after last call in the corner of the world in Dubrovnik.
