I have a bit of an identity crisis. After almost three years I have run out of doors.
That is, the ones waiting in designated folders to be posted. This is the last batch! Once I run through my photo archives, I’m bound to find more though.
It’s because I’m lazy, sedentary and waiting for a visitor to spur me into action, rather than using the best not-yet-hot (actually quite cold) times to hop around the million little towns that is Tuscany. But doing it with only bestia for company is a bit… Maybe you understand, maybe you don’t, but this line of thinking is the result of my plans to live to be 100. There is time.
I mean, this morning we had -2 C (32 F)! While in Slovenia it’s 0 to 6. I think this is the first time that over here is colder than over there. Good thing we have our lovely and beloved new stufa (furnace).
In other news, Fak! We have the first Olympic medal! Yesterday’s Slovenia’s ice-hockey victory over the USA (even without Anže Kopitar of Los Angeles Kings on Slovenian team) might have given Slovenian biathlon racer with the lovely surname Fak an extra push and he won silver today. Way to shut up all the haters who complained that he, a Croatian by birth, should not be the flag bearer for Slovenia at the opening ceremony. And so he wasn’t.
Better a medal than a flag.
As a thank you for the medal, I’m giving him and Croatia a bit of Piran back, at least in the shape of some colourful doors. Croatia and Slovenia are in dispute over the Gulf of Piran and some border land, you see. Tensions fly. Please be careful over there. This sounds like exactly a thing over which wars start.
