Ohhhhhhhh Croatia,
Well it looks like I skipped some Zs. I guess I will have to start over and head back to Zagreb. Lesson number #3 of name that capital. Its Croatia. Guess what... more of the same, rain. But before we left Ljubljana we visited its lone castle. Even with the rain, it was gorgeous. It is smack in the middle of the city tucked upon a hill. The city grew around it, but at one point it was home to every major civil department in the country (per the tourist video I fell asleep during... See photos). I decided then that it was necessary to grab a domestic red wine, which was served cold from the tap before leaving Slovenia for perhaps FOREVER. So then we headed off to another country. Man, don't you love Europe, a new country in only a little over 2 hours by train (a slow train I might add... see photo). So when I got to Zagreb a hostile (not hostel) ad greeted me as I got off the train (see photo). Then after an hour walk or so with what seemed like a ton of luggage on my shoulders, we reached out destination, only to find out that we needed reservations and the best we could do is find a spot on the common room floor, nice!! The crowd is nice though. For instance there is this Australian (looks perfectly normal) who is fascinated with "man's connection to spirituality). He convinced us to head to Sarejevo. He was headed there to look for people inspired by the Virgin Mary, who is supposedly spotted there quite often. He told me one of them knew when the end of the world was going to be. I told him not to tell me. He did say however that miracles are granted there often, that info I may just want. God nows I could use a miracle or two, ok maybe 3. There are a lot of funny pics you guys should check out. Like the "do not climb or else" sign posted in the castle, the train that we to took to Zagreb, and the "space invaders against feminism" (my favorite).
Enjoy my friends,
Wish you were all here with me!!
Ciao,
Mark

End of the world
Did he give you a hint? Does it involve Jamie Lynn Spears' baby, 18 wild boars and a hydrogen tank made of diamonds? If so I TOLD YOU SO.
