To serve as a reminder of the place that this blog is named after, here is May 1 Square in Piran, formerly the Piazza Portadomo, that sits just a block in from the Adriatic coastline that separates the town from Croatia’s Savudrija peninsula.
I haven’t visited there since early last October and found myself genuinely missing it this morning as I gazed lazily from my hotel window in the heart of Doha’s West Bay district, listening to the drilling of the construction crews that are working around the clock on the Qatari capital’s new underground metro system. It was already 99 degrees outside (38.4 C), and is expected to rise to 102 in the next hour or so. If I was on that crew, I’d lobby for a slot on the graveyard shift.
Today’s Pic du Jour, the blog’s 487th straight, was snapped in Piran, Slovenia, in May 2012. More pics from Piran are in this post here, which has absolutely nothing to do with Doha.
