Le temps est à la pluie.

Well, the title is one major effin understatement. No, it does not seem like it's going to rain, it's been raining more or less the whole time André and Olivier are here with us, in Ljubljana. Imagine them leaving ever so lovely Provence and changing the setting for rainy, cold, windy Ljubljana that looks like... well, a wet, dark, cold city. But, as things with good friends are. Who really cares about the weather and the lack of sun if one is in good company, right? :) So... we are apparently saving good weather for their next visit, but good mood and will are here to stay. Ahh, where and what would I be without my friends...




André and Olivier on Nebotičnik/The Skyscraper. Well, that's how we call it. :) It was built in 1933 and was at the time the highest residential building in Europe.



Before rain, right?


Detailing...


The Three.


This is how couples here lock their love on one of the bridges over Ljubljanica river.


Thinking...




Drama above the city...

very lovely.

so, when a couple breaks up, how do you get your lock off of the bridge? does someone keep the keys or did they throw the keys in the river? :P

Well... since the bridge opened a few months ago I guess we still need to see what happens with the love that went wrong. :)

Wow, that's a dramatic sky indeed! :)
And we had a sunny weekend! Yes, I'm rubbing it in! :P

Is Iggy bored of being in photos again? :)

LOL love the "thinking" photo.

What a lovely time it looks to have been. Even under clouds your City is ravishing.

I am intrigued by the custom involving the locks over the bridge... this kind of folk magic fascinates me endlessly.

I will dig deeper into locks. :))))

Damp and gray, still Ljubljana always looks delightful. I so want to be on your visitor list someday....

And oh, your handsome French friends!

Sky was really amazing. Well, given the rain it gave us, at least it looked the part. :)

We say it all the time, over and over again, but there really is no substitute for good friends. You seem to have all the sexy, good-looking ones!

The drama unfolding in the sky is beautiful, both the city square pic and the last one. The city looks great and I can't wait to see it (and you two, of course) ;-)

Well... good friends are the essence, yes! :) And you will totally enjoy Ljubljana, I tell you!

I love the idea of lock on the bridges over Ljubljanica river. We didn't do that in Taiwan. : )
