Croatian Adventure


Friday we (Keith, Ana/Ricardo/family, and I) were invited to go to Croatia by Sandy and Booz.  I immediately said yes and we left the next morning for Zagreb, Croatia.  It was a wonderful trip.  As soon as week arrived and checked into the hotel, we left in search of food.

There were 674382573482057243 cafés with 75648302674830926743 crammed inside and outside of them...but we couldn't find anywhere that served food...so we settled with a sausage stand.  This fancy sausage stand had a tent area for sitting with dirty soccer balls and chandeliers hanging from the "ceiling."  T'was an interesting mix

mmmmm.......the best hotdog/sausage ever.  We were all so freaking hungry!  For the rest of the afternoon/evening we meandered around the city.  According to one of the travel forums we read about prior to departure, there are 7 statues of dudes on horses throughout the city.  We found three of them.

 Okay, so after the first one, you get the idea...they all look pretty much the same.  Anyways, we saw the National theater, the "Upper Town" the Cathedral, markets, and per usual...Keith took a ton of pictures of graffiti.
