Dober dan from Slovenia,
We are here in Ljubljana the capital city of Slovenia. We arrived
yesterday afternoon and ended up walking most of the old town in search of
a hostel to stay at. For some reason they were all booked up Thursday night.
After crossing the city a few times and using the internet to search for
rooms we finally found a room in an old cold war era looking building up on the
12th floor in a 4 person dorm room; we were the only ones in the room. What
a dreary place that was! We looked right across a square into another
building where people actually lived, very stark living quarters.
My cold has started to break up a bit, but I have developed a nice
cough. Went by the pharmacy and got some kind of drink mix medicine that is
supposed to help my cough. Fortunately the pharmacist spoke very good
English and was able to help me. The weather today is very dark and
grey with threatening storm clouds. Colin and I both found it interesting
that last time we were in a former eastern block country (Czech Republic) it
was dark and grey just like today. We are sitting in a little café right
now having a few drinks and waiting to see if the weather clears a bit.
Our room for the evening is in a very cool hostel called Youth Hostel
Celica. It was a former military prison that has been converted into a
very trendy and hip youth hostel. We might stay one more night and head out
to Croatia on Sunday.
The people here are very friendly and speak very good English; even
most of the older generation we have come across speaks it well. The city is
alive all hours of the night.
Until next time this is Judge saying Nasvidenje.
