Croatia: A Country of Contradictions

As we drove northeast, we passed empty, decrepit houses, presumably abandoned by Serbs nearly two decades ago and never reclaimed.

In Zagreb, we walked up a street with ramshackle houses on one side and a new, modern mall on the other. Croatia is an amazing country of beauty and strength, rebuilding and modernizing in some places, while time stands still in others.
