Today we return to the village in Istria above the Dragonja river on the border between Slovenia and Croatia for its annual Garlic and Wine Festival and the second half of its doors, some again with wheels.
In the first post from here on my previous blog we had a look into the church and the museum, and today we continue our stroll around the village, taste some (not only garlic) goodies at the stalls and finish with a reunion of the man and the car from the featured photo, as it fits July 14th – which that day happened to be.
It’s clear that this is not Italy any more, even though it begins just 20 km to the north from here. It’s much too haphazard for it. Still, this is one lively, happy, welcoming village with winds, doors and cars from all directions and the mix of old and new. Let’s have a look.
In other news, over at Thursday Doors Norm’s we mourn the death of Gaston la Grenouille. (You’ll be pleased to learn it was only a link-gathering frog button and not some famous cyclist as the name suggests.) Now the only way to add your door post is by leaving the link in the comments. Never mind – do add! We want your doors!
