My knowledge of Slovenia has been sort of like a grey cloud, not much detail and a hint of bad news. So it wasn't a big surprise when the first full day here started out with lots of clouds and is ending with heavy rain. Everywhere from Amsterdam to Athens is getting soaked, and the Monsoons are hitting Bangaladesh.
Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia, is an 11th century castle across a river from a central city area. With two million people in the country, there are only 280,000 in the urban area. Flying in yesterday afternoon, we saw lots of villages on small mountain roads where the rest of the residents live.
We're doing the laundry, and tomorrow, we leave for five days in the mountains. These two-day stops in one place are very helpful, especially at the start of a new adventure.
