Ljubljana on a peaceful Sunday evening

I had a very good plan for yesterday: a morning coffee with my friend, lunch, another coffee with another friend, then ironing and writing some spam mails. Khm, not the illegal ones, though. ;) But those mails, that keep my business alive. Mails for cooperations. Well, I missed my point. The plan was all set. And it went well until lunch. I could never skip my meal, of course. :P The problem was that my friend for the second coffee (well, to be honest, the third, I had two in the morning J) canceled our meening. Which meant that the rest of my day will be different. And without going out twice. I thought to myself that this just means more things will be done and I will have a less tight Monday. But in the evening my head was full of staring at the computer and I needed to go out. Oh, and it was an off-running day.

So what to do? I don’t like walking by myself, so I found myself a perfect company. Of a third friend. Not for the third coffee, ha ha. J So, it was Sunday evening, around 9 pm and we went to the center. My favourite scroll, that I walked so many times.

 

Ljubljana, beautiful even when alone

But there was something different about it. The lights were still there. None of the buildings have moved. J The dark was as dark as usually … Then I noticed: the emptiness. Very few people were out in the centre, even on the Preseren Square which is usually full of tourists. But yesterday, almost nobody. I was feeling very funny with my camera trying to make a perfect picture of the castle with the hanging lights in the middle of Congress Square. My friend couldn’t stop laughing at me acting like a lost tourist. J

It was really quiet. Even on the evenings like that I like Ljubljana. Because of her ability to be perfectly honest. She doesn’t pretend to be a capital of million. But she proudly stands small, alone, quiet, humbly welcoming me, my friend and few others, searching for whatever.
