On the way to the city centre we met an old weird lady who wanted us to give her our addresses as she wanted to send us postcards from Zagreb. Me and Zuzka gave her to not sound rude, however I know it was a bit dangerous and naive.
In the town we used a funky tram to get to the top of the city. We couldn`t see too much though because of the fog. Me, Ola and and Monika separated with zuzka over there and decided to meet up after the evening prayer. Ola and me bought a bottle of a good red wine for the New Years Eve and together with Monika tried to get to the dinner on time. It wasn`t that easy as we thought it would as on the way to Zagrebacki Velesayam our tram was broken and we had to look for a bus station or whatever, in the middle of nowhere. Thankfully we found a bus, that stopped just in front os us so we were able to get into crowded machine.
The dinner wasn`t too tasty but at least we had something to eat. During the evening prayer brother Alois told everyone that the next Taize Youth meeting is going to happen in Geneva, Switzerland. Yay!!!!!!!
During evening animators meeting at our parish I found ut that one of the Geman guys, Peter, speaks Polish very well. We had a nice chat and I was quite amazed by his tongue as it doesn`t happen too often that a foreigner speaks in my mother language. Really cool! I also got one page of text to translate for the next morning. Our host mum - Stefica - was waiting for me until I was ready and then took me and Ola (Zuzka was too tired) to her friends. The son of her friends had 15th Birthday then so we had an opportunity to try Bday cake and drink a glass of wine
. Afterwards we were taken to...Croatian party! Imagine the situation: Croatian "Hot Line Band", everyone exept me and Ola dancing in couples (doesn`t matter if girl+guy, girl+girl or guy+guy), only local people speaking to us in Croatian and offering drinks. Yes! We finally had an opportunity to speak to the daughter from our host family. Ana is a "fresh" student so she has been partying every night until the morning. When we were leaving the house in the morning, she slept; when we were coming back in the evening, she was already out. She`s a nice girl and explained to me and Ola the dance rules in her country. When we were nearly getting off the party, 2 guys asked us for dance. They were tipsy and barely spoke English, but it was a good fun. Somehow they knew how to say that Polish girls are so beautiful, lol. I had a good laugh with them, but at 3 a.m. we decided to get back home otherwise we wouldn`t have got up in the morning.
We woke up with the feeling "kill me, I`m not gonna get up though". After the breakfast, morning prayer and little discussion we went again to Zagreb. Because the food from cans wasn`t the best in the world, us 4 (Ola, Zuzka, Monika and me) decided to not go for a lunch and eat something local in the city as well as a day before. At first though, we went to see the musk. The fog was like a milk, we couldn`t see almost anything whie walking towards the musk. The building looked quite interesting, it wasn`t crowded and we even got a travel guide (a very good looking one;)). He told us a lot about the muslim "churches" and even showed us a bit of singing.
