Women to Women celebration brought together women from Zagreb and those whose journey has brought them to Croatia. All together we came from more than 13 countries speaking over 10 languages. We often did not share each other’s spoken language but with translation gadgets, and especially through patience, understanding, curiosity and yes, love, we came together to celebrate.
Over two weekends we gathered and partnered up so that during the final gathering we exchanged gifts, shared delicious food (Briyani, Dolma, Kabeli, Kisir, Kuba, Shifta) and danced together.
Thank you to all who helped to create this celebration with a special recognition for our cooks and all the women provided donations, transport, desserts and gifts.
