This is one of only two photos I took today within Ljubljana proper – this one I posted to twitter and the other to my Facebook page. Yes, I’ve finally graduated to a better mobile phone. I’ll try not to get too out of hand.
Both were taken early this morning at Ljubljana’s train station, which is still as gray and drab as it was when I moved to the Slovenian capital nearly ten years ago. Publishing it in black & white actually adds color.
Its drabness doesn’t make me like it any less. It’s a perfectly fine utilitarian remnant from the Yugoslav days. It does however help fuel my disappointment with the halfhearted manner with which rail travel is regarded in Slovenia. We’ll save that topic for another day.
