I wrote this based on distant memory, I couldn’t quite recall the fun detail since it was a long while ago.
We docked in Cres and found, by far, my favorite camping site, the Kovacine (http://camp-kovacine.com/en), located right by the beach, hence, we stayed for 5 days. The camping site was humongous and divided by some sections, of which I couldn’t remember the exact detail. But I do remember there was the nude section. In my country, yang beginian bakal dirubung pria iseng dan digrebeg FPI.
We chose a site by the main road, a perfect location, since it was just short feet away from bakery and front office. The camping site was crowded, I guess it was quite famous, therefor, not only it has mini market and café, it also has kid center, including playground. Cres town, a feast to my lens, is just 10 – 15 minutes away, depends on your walking pace.
Along the main road, speedboats were parked, many of them. In my country, there is no such thing as parking boats in land.
As my racial feature (and my friend’s) was quite unknown to the campers, our camp spot often caught some passers by’s stares. My friend heard some kid asked his mom if we might have come from Finland. Right!
Oh, now I remember, on my first arrival in Trieste, we decided to crash McDonald at rest area for lunch. And it was funny that the minute I stepped in, most of the eyes in the room stared. At first, I felt very uneasy, I didn’t like being a center of attention. When I ordered at the counter, the waiter was nervous, he walked back and forth between me and coffee machine, asked me many questions and got it wrong many times-he spoke little English, and I swore he was trembling. At the end, I was frustrated since he was unsure what kind of coffee I wanted, and I was tired of explaining, not to mention that the line behind me was the longest, I told him, “Just give me coffee!”. My friend laughed at me and at that funny situation. Anyway, that day I felt like superstar…no comment is invited.
On one of those days in Cres, we rent a small boat. Captained by my friend, we reached secluded beaches. Funny thing, on the sea, a patrol boat stopped us, demanded boat driving license-which we couldn’t produce. The cop threatened us for greater fine if we refused to cooperate, aka bribed money. Since we protested, he finally said that we could get our money back from the boat rental agent. Wow, mafia game between boat rental and dirty cops. It happens every where, but it was still amazed me for it happened on the water, far from land.
So it got even better. We hopped on beautiful beaches (reachable by boats only-unless you want to swim all the way). I told you they were secluded, so it was so peaceful there. From the distance, as we headed to one beach, I noticed that a group of nude women were there already. I wondered if it was okay for us to dock there, since we wouldn’t go nude.
Did I say it got even better? For some reason, my friend’s glasses fell in the water, hence, he barely could see. So he demanded me to borrow goggle from those women who formed circle and sipping champagne in the water and having the time of their lives. So I asked them if they had goggle I could borrow, they didn’t have goggle. Somehow, one of them called out someone in language I didn’t know. And from up the hill, hidden behind tree and bush, a man came out.
Did I say it got even better just now? He was a middle age man and he was naked. He was up there on the hill, and I was down here by the shore, so my visibility was crystal clear. I mean, yeah, I would like to see some p****, but not that way my friend. I looked away from the bell (euphemism), but it had been recorded in my mind already. Again, I would love to see one, but not that way, my friend, and definitely not his.
Now I am telling you it got better and better, the goggle was on his boat, so I followed him to his boat. Now my visibility on his rear part (I played some euphemisms today) was crystal clear. KAMPRET! So he climbed on his small boat, he was up there, I was down here looking up, very close. He turned around and handed me the goggle. He was a kind man, but I saw him naked. For those of you coming from my culture, or culture like mine, you would understand why it was awkward. So unhallelujah for the school bell.
