Nun Skating
Roller-skating nuns have turned a nursery for underprivileged kids into a runaway success in Croatia.

The nuns on the run, in Zagreb, have been flooded with applications for places since they started teaching in skates.

Sisters Mateja, Bernardica and Kresimira started using the skates for exercise but now spend all day on them.

"We just thought it would be fun for the children," explained Sister Mateja at the St Vinko Paulski kindergarten.

"We have developed much closer relationships with the children. I actually broke my leg while skating around here - but that hasn't stopped any of us," she added.
