Ljubljana

sunny 29 °C

I'm in Salzburg now but just wanted to make a quick post re: Ljubljana.

I basically spent my time in Ljubljana walking. I walked a total of about 20 miles during my two days in the city, maybe a bit more. My feet are in pain now but I have a lot of ground to cover in Salzburg - no complaints!

The only sight (at least of the sights that I might care to visit) that I hadn't made it to last time I was in Ljubljana was the National Museum of Contemporary History. It tells a sometimes-contradictory story about Slovenian and Yugoslav history but it was well worth the 3.50Euro entry fee.

I met up with a nice American guy who's going to school at Whitman in Walla Walla and we walked through the former-Yugoslav-army-barracks-cum-artists-commune of Metelkova.

That's about the extent of my experience in Slovenia this time. It was pretty, as usual, and it remains about the most comfortable city in Europe for me. I really love it there. I noticed that while Serbia is a country under construction NOTHING seems to have changed since I was in Ljubljana in 2006 - even the construction sites appeared to be the same...

I'll check back in soon with Salzburg thoughts. I'm definitely getting ready to come home but I can't pass up an opportunity to see the last two towns remaining on my itinerary.
