Import/Export (PVDP on Vacation)

On Ivo Zaninovic street in Šibenik, Croatia
Not much of a photo, but it's full of symbolism. N. (our travelling companion and my close friend's daughter), was born in Croatia and came to California when she was 5 months old (export/import). We have a red Jeep Cherokee just like the one in the photo (import/export), and N. owns a white one... My son and I came to see the street that has my surname - my father's paternal relatives were all from this neighborhood.
On Sept. 7th, I will have been a US import for 40 years. I feel I have the best of both worlds.

And we are all better for your being an "import."
