It is a well-known fact that the city of Dubrovnik has one of the best-preserved archives in Europe. The records are quite detailed. For instance, you could read about neighbors having a feud over some land, etc. These records go back several hundred years.
From time to time, my family brings up an odd story concerning our next-door neighbor. Yes, our neighbor is a human being, not some ghost or a freak of nature. I will still not name names so as not to inconvenience anyone, though those reading this might recognize him, as his story is well known in certain circles of the city under the mount Srđ (the city of Dubrovnik).
