Croatia

Staying at the residence of the Australian Ambassador to Croatia. How kewl is that? Frambo has been showing us around. Have visited a multiplicity of small museums and galleries, including one for the WWII Jasenovac concentration camp. Have learned a great deal about the history of Croatia. The Croatian History Museum has an exhibit on Croatian refugees who were sent to the Egyptian desert by the British in 1944-46. The City of Zagreb Museum tells the story of the city. It's a little light on the 20th Century but covers the 1500-1900 period in great detail.
