Spring, Pt. Deux

 There's much more to spring in Ljubljana than what my previous post showed. It was a really beautiful day today, so I just sneaked ouf of the office an hour earlier to make a short stroll through the old city centre, which happens to be my favoruite part of Ljubljana. And, luckily, I only work 5 minutes of walk away from the very heart of my city. So, here's a bit more spring in Ljubljana, taken just before I went to the hairdresser to renew my ghetto (as I call it) lizard (as Igor calls it) look... Oh well. It happens. :)

Down by the river...


Willow, weep for me...

And just some spring life.

Wow! Beautiful! And so much "old world" charm!

So, when are you sending me the plane ticket so I can visit? I mean, like I have this passport and everything, but no where to go and stuff... :)

it is "old" indeed. The "Old Ljubljana" as we call it, is mainly baroque, because it was devastated by a major earthquake centuries ago and then renovated it in then fashionable style, but the area has been populated since 2.000 BC - the world's oldest wheel was found here.
Ok, enough of the history.... if you want to know more...
