Before Christmas passes me by as quickly as it came, here are a few shots from Ljubljana‘s Christmas Market in old town this year, which out of practicality (mine) will focus primarily on food and wine. Like the shot of the stand above, where bear and colt salamis rub elbows with their very distant deer and pork cousins. For salami lovers, Ljubljana indeed provides one stop shopping. Enjoy the tour!

I bet you've never seen pig-shaped sausage before.

And on that walk, I made a quick stop in the central ‪Prešeren‬ Square to play with my zoom.

    Great shots! As a true meat lover, I always had a tendency to go a bit overboard at Christmas markets when I was studying abroad. Not so much a problem now that I’m back in the States, but it was great while it lasted! What I’m saying is that the meat shots make me very happy 😀
