2006 is here

Well, it has been here for a while now, I guess. I’ll try not to make this the boring-est post ever, but there are no guarantees. Celebrating the start of a new year was super fun, we went sledding in the middle of the night and still have bruises to show for it. I drove around in Zagreb (in a stick-shift, after 4 months of no driving) at 3 or 4 in the morning- suffice it to say, it is a true miracle we didn’t get hopelessly lost or immobilized in the snow. In the morning I also managed to drive through the center of the main city square- not meant for cars, only pedestrians and trams, thankfully we weren’t arrested or run over by a tram. The Hertz rental car people wouldn’t have liked that.

Celebrating the beginning of 2006 in the Butlers' basement.

A sweet castle in Trakošćan.

We also spent a few days in Trakošćan (a small village north of Zagreb) and played ultimate frisbee in 1.5 feet of snow- almost enough exercise to make up for several weeks of sitting and eating cookies.

All of us waiting for the bus home.
