Tomato, to-mah-to — Slovenia, Slovakia …

We had a heck of a time remembering the name of this country, so then trying to pronounce the name of its capital, Ljubljana, made us feel like we’d had one too many pops of schnapps.  But the town was charming.  Elegant old buildings, young people from the university filling the cafes along the river, families enjoying the shops and open squares, and kids on roller skates, skateboards, and bikes.  It hums with positive energy, and this spontaneous street art is typical of the “have some fun with us” spirit.
After consulting my notes, Slovenia it is!  Definitely worth remembering.
