Why Sina missed her flight this morning...

Yip, the unbelievable happened... we were in an accident on the way to the airport this morning. It was a 5 car pile-up and we were car number 4. As you can see, car number 5 was going really fast and was actually to blame for us hitting the car in front - Ljilja had managed to stop in time but when he hit us we were pushed into the car in front. PTL that we were in Miika's Jeep and not in my little Peugeot!!!!
Everyone involved was okay, and actually the damage to the jeep was fairly minimal in comparison to the last car...
His car was completely wrecked:
And the most amazing thing is that out of the 5 cars, we were the only one who didn't pay a fine! Because we had only hit the car in front because of the last car hitting us, Ljilja was not in fact to blame for anything, so PTL, she didn't get a fine!!

But, because we weren't able to leave the scene of the accident, we simply watched Sina's flight take off - we were that close to the airport! Once we got to the airport we found out that her next flight out is only on Friday - it is a good thing that we like having her here!!! We made good use of the day, by seeing some of the sights of Zagreb. Here we are in St Mark's square:
I gave one of my best tours of Zagreb: I couldn't have planned it better if I was actually trying: we came out by the guntower at 11.59: just in time to have our eardrums almost burst when the gun went off (just like in Cape Town they have a noon gun!)

Despite the horrible way that it came about we are looking forward to spending another few days with the lovely Sina: She has learnt to say "Ja sam slatka i slobodna, hvala Bogu" in Serbian (which means: "I am sweet and single, thank God") and is just fun to have around...
