Free Hugs in Rijeka
Anna was at the 50th anniversary of the Italian NonViolent Movement in Verona and told us that we could stay at their home in Rijeka if we wanted to come through Croatia.
Andrea met us at the bus and took us to the main walking street, where we met youth giving Free Hugs. We put our backpacks in the car and I gave Free Hugs, too! Then we went to where Andrea, Elena, Elvis, Maggie, and Paolo live. We were joined for dinner by Lidya and Tatiana. We were joined for dinner by Lidya and . They have an amazing life and we learned a lot about the Balkan war of 1991 to 1995. Pictures
