Thumbs down

Holly is seven years old and she is from Nevada, USA. She is my friend's niece and she is doing a project for school involving helping Flat Stanley to see the world. The idea is to take Stanley somewhere, take a photo and also write something about where he went.

For example, I'll take the Flat Stanley's drawing (see picture bellow), just as a friend of mine asked me to do, to a coffee bar in Zagreb. I will place Flat Stanley next to me, order my capuccino and have someone take a picture of the two of us. Cigarettes on the picture are out of question :smoke:

I'll do this in Zagreb, can you do it wherever you are? And then post your picture here!

There's plenty of time. Holly has a presentation in early May.

Do you remeber a dwarf from French movie Amelie?

Wow... cool school project! In "my time" we didn't have that kind of projects, but I guess that was a long time ago :whistle:

I'm not going to promise anything (because I hate to break promises) but I'll try to get something.

BTW, wouldn't it be better to take "him" to places that could be easily identified? I mean, and following your example, a bar - unless it's a very well known place from a very specific town - can be difficult to connect to the town in question. I think it could work better if we take "him" to visit some national buildings, statues, bridges, towers, etc... But this is just my suggestion

Stanley in the Maksimir Park. This public park was established in 1794. Stanley is standing in its central area in front of Vidikovac (panorama building) with a beautiful view on the lakes, the central alley and thick woods surrounding the park. Next to the park is a city ZOO with 281 animal species. People come here to enjoy the nature, jog, walk their pets or take a ride on a bike. In summer children go pony riding.

Stanley at the Flour Square, the most famous square in Zagreb with numerous kavanas (kava means coffee, kavana means a coffee place), flower kiosks in the south, a cinema and a church. Zagreb people love having coffee in kavana with family, friends or colleagues. They also don't mind sitting alone and watching people go by or simply read a newspaper. Kavana is for sure a central socializing place in Zagreb and in Croatia.

Oh do I ever. Amelie was one of the best films that I have seen in a long time. Along with the dwarf (garden gnome), there is that delightful bit with the prompter for shy people, and the faked letter from the wayward, dead ex-husband of the concierge. Except for the gratuitous montage of sex scenes for the question "How many people are having orgasms, right now?", it would almost be a good family film.

Le Fabuleus Destin d'Amélie Poulin's an awesome movie, especially the garden gnome idea in there I'll see if I can get a pic with Stanley from Belgium, and'll ask 'round to see if some people I know that aren't on Abandonia can take a pic with Stanley from where they live, too k:
