Ljubljana: food and ‘art’
Written on Saturday 23 February, 2008
During our perambulations around the cobbled streets of the old town we noticed that the graffiti artists of Ljublana have a penchant for the canine and ovine as their muses. These characters appeared more than once on the walls of shops and restaurants. I wonder why? I think they’re quite fun.
As well as exploring Ljubljana, we went on a day-long exploratory jaunt to the village (small town?) of Bled, which is accompanied by a lake with an island: a ‘must see’ in the guidebooks. It was nice, but it was the church we wandered into which I preferred, in actual fact. It was replete with wall paintings which exhibited the Lords Prayer while celebrating the Slovene people in a very soviet way: pictures of men and women working in the fields preparing food, in the case of “Give us this day our daily bread”. Fascinating.
On the way back, our bags got lost as we made a transfer through Brussels airport which is a bit annoying. I think they’ll turn up here tomorrow.
Update: The bags did turn up, intact, on Sunday.
