Trip to Slovenia

We began our travel later in the afternoon. We had hoped to get an early flight, but there were none. So we left for Slovenia at 3:45 on Tuesday. I was finally able to get a few pictures of the airport. Well, like one.

There was some important news that came out last week, right before we left. The former first President of Macedonia, Kiro Gligorov, passed away last week. He was very important to the development of a Macedonian culture. You can find a news story here. Macedonia declared the day we left a Day of Mourning, and all the flags were half staff.

Once we arrived in Slovenia, we went through customs and waited for the city bus to come pick us up. There was a really cool display with lots of brochures for cool things to do in Slovenia while we were waiting for customs to clear us. It was nice to see that they actually seemed to care about people doing stuff in their country.

While we were waiting for the bus to take us into the center of the city (about a 45 minute bus ride), we met this nice Macedonian girl who is studying law in Slovenia. When we arrived at the hostel, we meet up with some Americans who were studying in France as part of a study abroad of Seton Hall. They joined us for yummy Indian food and a walk along the river on our way back to the hostel.

They had some ...interesting...Christmas/New Years decorations up. shooting angels, and the universe in lights. But it was still very pretty.
