I 'm wondering if you would appreciate a piece of news from Paris from time to time?
I had the honor to meet you a year and a half ago in Paris at Easter just before thebeginning of the great concert of our singers from the island of Hvar. I've been following Croworldnet since and I've seen that not so many news come from Paris, or France in general, and cultural events do take place.
Perhaps, these pages target rather North America ? Anyway, I enclose a brief description of two events happening these days.
CROWN is interested in EVERYTHING Croatians do around the worldand we all do appreciate your letter. Please do continue. We would be interestedto hear more news from Sweden, Germany, Australia etc. Both in English andCroatian as well as local language. So, next time, if you have time, pleaseinclude all the languages. Thanks a lot. Najljepsa hvala i svako dobro.
