Postage Stamp of the Week: Donkey

Last summer Eliza and I accompanied my dad and a bunch of other Mandiches on a cruise from Athens to Venice, stopping along the way in Montenegro and Croatia, bringing my countries-I've-visited count to 21. I love Croatia -- it's where my grandfather came from, and it's where we ate lots of pizza and pasta and seafood and strolled around the cool old towns of Dubrovnik, Korcula, Hvar and Mali Losinj. We swam among the little fishes in the Adriatic and shopped at Konzum for such products as Chipsy and Barpy!. I enjoyed lotsa Croatian beer, including my favorite, Ozujsko, as well as Pivo Lasko and Karlovacko (served locally at Smith). We also drank Croatia's ubiquitous donkey wine, whose mascot resembles the critter on this Croatian donkey stamp.

Here are all of Croatia's stamps, 1991-present.
