Satsuma Oranges

Written by The Tembas on December 3rd, 2007

Now that Christmas is getting closer, the Satsuma oranges have arrived in the produce section of all the supermarkets. Satsumas have to be one of the greatest fruits ever. We eat about two boxes a week during their short season. Last December when we were in Brijesta, a small fishing village on the Croatian coast where my great-grandparents were from, satsuma harvest was in full swing. We were told to eat as much as we could. Between us we probably polished of 40 a day. It turns out that this part of Croatia grows the satsumas for most of Europe. Along with satsumas we ate a lot of olive oil and mussels, their other main crops. Other than eating we visited with family and enjoyed the amazing views.

Last night in Split, Croatia 

After settling back into our life, we sometimes forget to look back at our nine months of traveling. It is fun to check our journal and see what we were doing last year at this time. Today we traveled from Split to Dubrovnik in Croatia, along one of the most beautiful coastal highways in the world. Everyone needs to visit this fabulous country.
