has a nice collection of pictures. Maybe you can add female
costumes/characters? I hope to see more Croatian interest. I was in
Croatia also in the 70s, and it was just great. Croatian language
was also cool. To my Polish-American ears, it sounded a bit like
Slovakian with an Italian accent. Here in northern Virgina, A
Croatian lady who recently came to the US is teaching my kids how to
ride horseback, and I am looking for an opportunity to find out if
she has any interest in history and culture... maybe I can turn her.
