29th May 2015 – Ljubljana, Slovenia
Like the lifeblood of a forgotten empire,
The Ljubljanica flows though. Ever so slowly.
I flow too. Sometimes lost in a newfound current.
I am not a innate traveller. Yet, I try to be.
I left the Roxannes in the morning today. I had a bus leaving Ljubljana by 3PM, but since there was no way I could give the keys to Roxanne, I decided to leave with them in the morning, when they went for their work.
After spending some time in the local McDonalds, I clicked around the Ljubljanica river in the morning. Before being joined by Tina, who suggested a game of Billiards to pass some time. Turns out, the billiards she was referring to, was actually a game of 8-ball pool. I had to explain the difference with her while playing. We played 2 games, winning one each. Thats gender equality for you.
And then, I bid my goodbyes to one of the most beautiful cities I have been in Eastern Europe. Ljubljana may be small, but small things come in good packages, like someone said. It was a delight for the senses just walking through its narrow streets. But when you are travelling, all good things must gradually become good memories. And so does Ljubljana.
I did enjoy my time here. But now I must revisit another favourite city of mine.
Will write to you from Budapest tomorrow. Yes, the same Budapest where I stayed 10 days previously.
