After church, everyone gathered outside and visited just like at home. Sandra's cousin Jozica invited us to her house for coffee. Of course we went. Her almost husband was so excited to be entertaining an American. His name was Jozi. He took pictures of us because he said he had never had an American at his house before
After that wonderful visit we went back to Sandra's. We weren't there for very long when Sandra's neighbor and aunt found out that she had an American guest and she said we had to go visit her. So we did. She was so hospitable. She pulled out a huge jug of homemade schnapps and a couple of shot glasses. I couldn't get my glass empty before she would refill it. And then another neighbor showed up. And then Sandra's dad and the husbands of the aunt and other neighbor showed up. It became a party. We were sitting outside on a little picnic table. Sandra's aunt kept bring out a bunch of food. She made dandelion salad and homemade sausage and mashed potatoes. A little while later, Andrej showed up on his motorcycle. It was so much fun. Everyone was really interested in me
Sandra had made us lunch too. It was so hard to eat though after eating so much at the neighbors. I forced food down though because Sandra had been making it all day and I didn't want to be rude. Her father gave me more of their homemade wine too. Sandra's cousin Tina came over for a little visit to say goodbye to me after lunch.
After saying goodbye to everyone it was time to go meet Zoran so I could say goodbye to him too. We went to a little cafe and had a quick goodbye because he had to be somewhere and I had to get to the train station anyway. At the train station Sandra and I hung out until my train came. It was sad to have to say goodbye to her again. I hope I'll see her again someday.
This trip was so wonderful. It was so interesting to be around so many people who had never met an American before. I have never felt so exotic.
