Rainy Monday

September 8th is the start of school year in Croatia. Only few weeks ago many doubted that the school would start today. Official textbooks for this year weren't in bookstores and the intense heat led many parents to call Education Ministry and demand the start of school year to be postponed, due to most of Croatian schools lacking air-conditioners.

Things in the end worked fine. Textbooks appeared in bookstores and the weather improved. Intense summer heat was replaced by rain, wind and drastic decrease in temperature. Most of children went to school today wearing long sleeves – and this is something rare for Croatia in early September.
