We can begin? Okay. Now, what you see here is, at least in summer or in the pole, one of the nicest views of Ljubljana, it looks like Paris, green leaves et cetera, on both sides nice old houses, nothing special, eh? But you’re wrong. This river here is the official geographical limit between Balkan and Mitteleuropa. So beware. On the other side, horror, oriental despotism, women get beaten, get raped and like it.. On this side, Europe, civilization, women get beaten and raped, but don’t like it. So: Balkan, Mitteleuropa. Don’t forget it.
