If Ljubljana Castle and Prague Castle ever had a stand off in the wild, wild west, Ljubljana would totally win and head off into the sunset with the hot girl.  Ljubljana's castle is far superior for the following reasons:

1.  It is practically empty so you can wander all over the place without bumping into anyone.
2.  It is free.  Prague not only charged you for each section, but then charged another fee just to take pictures!
3.  You can have snowball fights in the courtyard (or at least small ones without getting caught).
4.  It provides you with a gorgeous view of the entire city. 
5.  It is a super cool castle with all of these different areas and neat stuff to see.  Itęs been renovated so that you have the old traditional stuff with some modern elements, but they are incorporated in a way that is not tacky (wish I could say as much for Soldier Field in Chicago).

Have I mentioned how much we like Slovenia?  People are way nice and friendly.  And Ljubljana is such a pretty little city.  Even though it was snowy and cold, it was sunny and bright all day.  Definitely our favorite place so far.

Tonight we are staying at another hostel.  This one was the former British consulate or something like that.  They have painted graffiti-like murals on each floor (this town is reallz into graffiti).  Free internet as well, which is why we are blogging yet again. 

PS, you need to excuse some of the typos because the keyboards are wierd here.  I still have not found the apostraphe key. 

PS2, as I look at the pictures Jeremy is downloading onto the site, I notice sadly that I look like a bloated tomato (or a red pimple according to Jeremy).  In my defense, I am wearing about 75% of me entire wardrobe on the cold days and I thought red would add a splash of color to my otherwise black wardrobe.  I am wearing silk longjohns on top and bottom, pants, wool socks, long sleeved shirt, think wool sweater, fleece, windbreaker, scarf, hat, gloves, and shoes.  You would look bulky too with that many layers!
