On Saturday, Sandra and i went to the capitol city. It was a nice drive with beautiful country to see. Sandra had gone to college in this city for four years. We parked at her old college and walked to the center of the city. It was a small city. In the center there was a river with three white foot bridges that were pretty close together. There was also a nice church in the center that was kind of pink in color and the facade looked Renaissance style. There were bars and cafes lining the river.
   We came upon a little farmers market and there were some people there playing what Sandra told me was traditional music. They were also wearing traditional clothes. It was very nice, cheerful music. They all had homemade instruments with the exception of an accordion. I didn't even know what one of the instruments was. There was a woman with maracas, and a woman with a stick with metal end that's apparently used to take bread out of the oven. A woman had a kazoo attached to a bull horn. The man playing accordion was also playing kazoo. There was a man playing this thing that looked like a drum only with a rubber top with a stick through it and it made a bassey sound when he pulled the stick in and out of the drum. Then there was a woman playing this thing with three gut string on a stick which reached down to a drum looking thing. They were a bizarre band but they made good entertaining music. There was this old man who jumped in front of the crowd and started dancing. Sandra told me he said that he was "18 again".
   We then went up to the famous castle. We got there on a gondola because, of course it was high on a hill above the city. We could see the whole city from up there it was beautiful. There was also a wedding going on which was cool to see.
   After this we went shopping and I finally found some pink converse, which I've been looking for since being in Europe. Everything was so much cheaper in this country. I wish I could have shopped for longer.
   After shopping we headed back to Celje. On our way we stopped at a restaurant that has the best donuts in Slovenia. It also had a beautiful view.
    We went back to the same mall to the same cafe to meet her friend Sabina. She was also shy to speak English. There's a large movie theater in this mall and Sandra and I decided to go see the Bucketlist. The cinema was massive! It had lights on the ceiling to look like stars and there were red curtains hanging from the edges of the screens. We had assigned seats which I thought was different. The movie was great. After, we went home and to bed.
