The travelers have arrived in Slovenia, after a long trip from pasco to salt lake city to atlanta to milan to venice to ljubljana yesterday. slovenia is a wonderful slice of europe, small, friendly and accommodating, and we walked most of it today. tomorrow we will drive to bohinj and bled, scene of spectacular waterfalls and lakes and a font of slovenian culture, after which we will head for kobarid and return to the world war once again, just a week or so after the last class. we also hope to hit the adriatic coast before leaving for budapest at 0200 monday morning. the survey of the new europe continues...once again, very much worth the effort for anyone interested in recent history. there is a lot to contemplate here, also a lot of fine wine to be consumed and kul'tchah to be imbibed. over and out, ciao!
