Croatian, I have discovered, is not an easy language to get my head around. Despite my smatterings of Greek, Latin, Italian, French, Spanish and Portuguese, there are still few clues. For instance, whilst trying to buy eggs in the supermarket, how to tell if they are free-range and preferably organic? No translations on the box. In the end I select the box with the smiliest chicken on the box. Well, what else can a poor gal do?
