No. 5 MAY 2020.

 

 

In our thematic examination of the Adriatic isles we look at the culture, history and natural bounty of the island of Mljet, situated in the magical waters facing Dubrovnik. Along with the crossing of the apostle Paul’s travels and this island, and a literary residence at an Odyssean refuge, readers will learn of the fascinating careers of people that have left Mljet to live in New York and California.
