Celebrations and Empty Streets
Last evening Zagreb witnessed the celebration of Croatian EU membership candidacy. "Witnessed" is, of course, a relative term. I don't envy those poor souls who had to stand, listen to Beethoven's Ode to Joy and watch the European flag go up. In the meantime, most Croatians were at their TV screens watching the game between Netherlands and Czech Republic – probably the best example of what soccer was supposed to be.
