Meanwhile, though, we'll make another stop, elsewhere in Europe. A few weeks ago, Lisa responded to one of our mutual blog readers, a faithful (and bright and erudite) commenter who goes by the nom-de-plume Dottoressa, that perhaps D might write a guest post for her. I greedily piggy-backed on this suggestion, and the Doctor and I began an e-mail conversation that has resulted in this treat for you today. Dottoressa's one apprehension over accepting my invitation was that English is a Second Language for her (she has several languages -- I'm envious and admiring!). I think you'll agree that she needn't have worried. I changed the spelling of one word throughout, but otherwise, this charming insight into Croatian culture is as written by D.
So without further ado, as they so often say in introductions, here she is. Grab your coffee and let's all pretend we're joining Dottoressa in Zagreb. . . Wouldn't that be wonderful?!
Hi! I'm Dottoressa from Zagreb, Croatia, EU. I am honoured to be invited as a guest of the Materfamilias blog , so I stopped by to have a cup of coffee with you. It is not a mistake, just wait a minute and see for yourself.
One of my favourite cafes:

Thank you so much, Dottoressa. It was delightful having coffee with you this morning. I hope that someday, perhaps, we might meet, in person, and share a real cup or two. . .
As always, I welcome all comments to this post. Feel free, since this is a guest post, to direct your questions or your responses directly to Dottoressa, but I will be moderating as usual and also happy to chime in if you have comments for me.
