September 2 was the date of the first “wordwide” POCO Community Convention when I met with Alex in Lovran, near Rijeka in Croatia. Alex lived in that area for 30 years before he moved to the USA, and came back for two weeks to visit his parents. Since at the same time I spent my vacation there, this was a great opportunity to meet him in person for the first time, after knowing him only from the many e-mail conversations we had in the last 18 months.
We had a great time, including a phantastic lunch at a place called “Najade”, right by the sea (thank you, Alex!).
