|Karlovac Christmas Party|
this is where we need to be right now. We love interacting with the people of Karlovac and they appreciate our efforts in speaking their language. We continue to struggle with casing, gendering, conjugating, pronunciation, and proper accent... but we are making progress...
There are ice rinks all over Croatia. It's not cold enough to freeze ice, so they have cooling coils set up under the rink, to freeze the water. We have one here in Karlovac, and there is a sweet one in Zagreb. There were quite a few people skating today in Zagreb. It made me think of when I was younger and every neighborhood had a rink. Kids went skating every day after school, no matter how cold it was.

We had to take the car in to Zagreb for an oil change. EK dropped me off at Metro to do some Christmas shopping. The car appt. was at 10:00 a.m. and we thought it would take about an hour or so. At about 1:00, I began to wonder what was going on. EK has a phone, but I do not. There is no way for us to communicate when we are separate. It got to be 2:00, and finally I went to the front desk and asked to use the phone. She didn't speak much English, but she understood what I meant. EK said they were finishing up and that he would come soon. He came to pick me up at 2:30. That's a four hour oil change. I don't think their definition of an appointment is the same as ours. We had a good laugh over that one. We ended up going over to the Arena Mall and we came across some awesome Lego models. I decided to sit with them a while..

We have two new missionaries in Karlovac. They are Sister Yardley, and Elder Poore. We are happy that they here in time to spend Christmas with us!
The word of the week for our unici: Stretan Božić, which means Merry Christmas!
