August 4: Zagreb
Zagreb is an interesting city. I only stayed briefly, exploring the the old city around Gradec, but one thing that stood out was the nice tram system running through town. Pedestrian / vehicle interaction is very casual - trams, cars, and people weaving through the same space at low speeds.
And, of course, arriving in Zagreb was the first time I had to deal with serious inclement weather.
|Good stuff in the Naive Art Museum too|
August 5: Lake Bled
I was a little sad I didn't get to see Lake Bled in full majesty - the cloud cover hid much of the mountainous surroundings. Good thing I'm going to Switzerland in a week or two.

August 6: Ljubljana
Ljubljana is a fun little city. Feels a lot like an Alpine village, but with Mediterranean flair. It's also a college town, which lends some extra energy. The city is filled with street cafes that don't serve food, that seem to have a constant stream of occupants nursing drinks and smoking.
The food is not too expensive but somewhat uninspiring; had myself a few bureks from street stands during the day.
Oh, and when it rains, horrible demon winds rush through the city in random directions, rendering umbrellas laughable.
