2) We have launched a petition drive to demand direct flight to Croatia from the United States!

Dubrovnik, Zagreb, New York and Split are world's most vibrant and entrepreneurial cities but DO NOT have an overseas direct non stop flights which could connect our cities in just over 8 hours. Through our petition we can show the Airlines there's strong demand for a direct New York - Dubrovnik - Zagreb flight, providing essential market research on how profitable the route could be.

Visit to sign and make your voices heard and pass it along to your friends! You can also support the initiative by joining us on Facebook here:

3) I will be in Washington D.C. on April 22th, to participate in a panel discussion and perform at the 1st conference being held by the Association of Croatian-American Professionals. You can get more information about the conference here:

You can see the brim of his hat in the upper right hand corner. Photo taken by Danny Schechter.

Finally, there is a rumor is that Nenad will be performing this year in Sibenik, Dubrovnik, Zagreb, Jerusalem, and Buenos Aires. Updates to follow in upcoming newsletters.
