Thanks to Michael, I had a significant amount of time to spend with the little Croatian translator book. Since I first saw the book, I decided I wanted to learn a significant amount of Croatian speak.
Upon my first day in Zagreb I have realized that the people are very nice and welcoming, particularly if they realize you’re making the effort to speak their tongue. Despite their welcoming nature, when I actually hear Croatian it’s so intimidating that everything I have attempted to learn goes out the window! This will certainly be something I intend to work on while I’m here.
I strongly enjoyed the live performances put on throughout the town square by regular civilians, just trying to make some extra cash. Hearing singing over a harmonious accordion completed the entire experience: eyes, nose and now ears engaged. More than anything, I adore the architecture here because it holds such a strong sense of permanency.
I am ready and willing to accept any opportunity this country has in store for me, so bring on tomorrow.
