That's hello in Slovene. And I'll apologize right now for typos and bad grammar, the keyboard is in Slovene and a bit difficult to sort out. For example, the z and y are reversed and the symbols, oh I won't even go into those. Hence, no proper contractions.
Alright, travel details.
Got to Atlanta fine, and actually made it out of there on time. Flew Air France to Paris and landed on time. Made sure I could leave the aiport with out a problem and that my bag was checked through and then headed for the RER rail into the city. I won't lie, it took me about six rides up and down the elevator to figure out how to get to the rail station (the arrow on the sign pointed down) however, it meant go straight about 30 meters, then go down. So, I'm now very familiar with the concourse at Terminal 2C.
Oh, and it was amusing to me that on the route map shown on the plane that Abilene, Texas was on everyone until we got over water. We used to live there and I didn't realize it was such a notable town.
In Paris, I went straight to Notre Dame cathedral and spent about an hour wandering through there. Next, I walked over to the Louvre, even though its closed on Tuesdays. Took way too many pictures of the glass pyramids. Did see the Eiffel Tower on the way over, while walking along the Seine. Went back to Notre Dame for noon mass. Then back toward to Louvre with plans to visit the Eiffel Tower. But instead, I detoured to the Park and walked up the Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe. That was a long walk, and I had planned to veer over to the Eiffel Tower next, but I was exhausted (didn't sleep much on the plane) and the RER station was conveniently right there, so I hopped back on and headed to the airport.
In the train station, I met a French guy who lives in London, but was on holiday in Paris. Oddly enough, he needed my help to navigate the RER. But he was going to the airport too, so easy enough. Apparently I look as if I know where I'm going in a city I spent five or six hours in, because quite a few people asked me for directions, in French. I took four years of the language in school, but my skills are limited.
So, today, I slept in late to make up for a few days of not sleeping. Then headed into town. Went straight up Castle Hill to the Ljubljana Castle. Not a lot to see there, but a good hike and nice weather. Then wandered down the other side and through more of town. Went to the open air market and bought some apples, since things are expensive here, markets might be the way to go.
I'm sitting in the internet cafe right now, which it costs a ton to use the internet, so I'll wrap up here in a second, but there's American music blasting, Miley Cyrus at the moment no less. The taxi driver last night was also playing American music in his Mercedes. But, he was very friendly and helpful.
Tomorrow, I'll spend some more time in Ljubljana and then head to Postojna I think. That's where the caves are a castle is nearby. So, need to get to some logistics. Will post again soon.
Nasvidenje. (Goodbye in Slovene)
