Nothing much is happening right now. Mom and I have been to the movies 3 times now, which are across the street. I'm trying out every dessert place in Zagreb and so far all of them are delicious! I've tried mostly ice cream places, but also some cakes and other desserts!

let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Today it snowed! It actually snowed! In the morning, it snowed big clumps of snow, but by the time i went outside, it was snowing tiny frozen droplets. The snow went down my shirt, into my eyes, and onto my hair. It was quite annoying snow. But it was cool!

Today was AWESOME!!!!!!!!! I had to double the schoolwork since i had last week off. BUT in the middle of the day, Mom said I had worked hard enough on my schoolwork so I could take a break and we went shopping! We went to a department store, the book/movie store, and, best of all, THE CHOCOLATE BAR!!!!!!!!! I had this cake and it was really good! Also, mom bought me a donut! Of course, then afterwards, I had to go back to my schoolwork... :(

Here are some pictures I took on my motorcycle tour yesterday and today:

They are from top to bottom: the olympic gardens, the sagrada familia (church they're still building after 120 years), mediterranean beach, place built by Gaudi, 2 pics of gingerbread houses built by Gaudi, a square with LOTS and LOTS of pigeons (which dad would probably freak out about), a picture of the mediterranean sea taken from under Christopher Columbus's (in the picture below the picture of this) feet, a very official-looking building, the statue of Christopher Columbus, a very cool-looking wavy thing along the bridge over the Mediterranean, and a small thing near the Mediterranean Sea.

Okay, so me and mom went on a little walk to the main square here and there was this supermarket. It was so BIG! It pretty much kicked Raley's, Costco's, and all the other supermarkets in California's butts. It was so big you could name something and they would probably have it! Actually, on the way there, we went by this other supermarket and we thought it looked cool so we went inside and it was so cool! It had meat, all types of fruits and veggies, pastries, seafood, and lots more stuff! I saw the seafood and it was awesome! Excpet for the fact that the shrimp were so fresh their legs were still moving and the fish had eyes that STARED at you! I don't really like food that has eyes.

In our building there is one step outside to get to the door, 7 steps inside to get to the main hallway, and 73 steps to get to our apartment, all together 81 steps to our apartment, counting as my P.E. whenever we go up the steps.

The time here is funny! Even though it's 9 hours ahead of california, it's still funny because all Europeans (I think) go on 'til 24:00! After 12 in the afternoon, they go to 13 then 14 then 15 and on! It's just so funny...

My Apartment

Our apartment is AWESOME!!!!!!!! The piano is beautiful but I haven't played on it yet, except for brief moments when I would start pressing a few of the keys but mom would tell me to get off. The kitchen is tiny, but still cool. There's a magnifecent study and a living room, which the piano is in. My bedroom is connected to mom's bedroom and a closet which leads to the bathroom. I just learned how to let mom in the building when she wants to. There's also a hallway which dad might complain is a "waste of space".

Arrival in Croatia

I'm finally here in Croatia! Our apartment is amazing! It has old furniture! And the piano is awesome but mom won't let me use it yet. Our apartment's backyard is the train station so we hear trains all day. And the screeching of the train as it comes to a stop. And occasionally a horn honking. Every room in the house has a heater except for mine. Mom can't find the hot water so someone's coming over to fix it. I HAVE A CELL PHONE!!!!!!!!!!! But I can only use it for emergencies, like a stampede of elephants is going through the living room.
