Croatia Online - Split Library Book Promotion
We asked Sanctus Domnio (see our earlier posting on Mandolins), an excellent local Mandolin orchestra, to provide background music and they very nearly stole the show with three lovely pieces that held our guests to their seats before they could adjourn to drinks and canapés in the adjacent room. They are off to Imotski today for an annual Mandolin competion which they have had frequent success in previously. Good luck to them this year.
Perhaps the visual highlight of the evening was Rosella Vujević’s fantastic cake, pictured, which as well as being intricately detailed also tasted very good as well.
Thanks also to Ivica Buble of Dalmatia Charter, http://www.dalmatiacharter.com/ for his early support of the book and connecting us with Joško Pilić, Nigel Turnbull, http://www.sailingschoolcroatia.com/, for standing in as Croatia Online’s photographer, Mladen Vušcović for taking the video footage, Keko and family for their much appreciated ongoing support and, particularly, to Ana Brničević of Korenat Point, http://www.korenatpoint.com/, who, in her spare time, provided much of the impetus, encouragement and practical assistance needed to make it all happen.
Thanks also to all those that forwent the European Cup Final and the eve of a Croatian Bank holiday to attend, some of whom travelled a long way to do so. Unfortunately we didn’t manage to get a complete list of those that attended so apologies for exclusions but below are the websites of just a few of our guests. Anyone reading this who has not been included and would like to be, please send us a comment and we will amend the posting.
