Coffee with Milk, Please

Next week is going to be very difficult. How will I find an outdoor cafe crowded with people? Will anyone be willing to serve me coffee with milk in a nice china cup with saucer? Will they understand how I can linger over it for at least an hour? Not likely. Tomorrow I am returning to the U.S. after nearly a month in Croatia. In between a hectic work schedule, I managed to partake in a coffee or two (or probably 50). Business gets done here over coffee. Ideas get shared. People converse. Forget about laptops and newspapers. Cafes are for talking and sipping. Oh, how I'll miss the sipping. But mostly I'll miss the feel of this place.
