Trip to Maribor

Recently I attended a business conference in Maribor, Slovenia. It was only a one day event, so unfortunately I didn't have much time to take photos. Nevertheless I decided to take a stroll through the old city center on my way back to the main train station.

These photos were taken on the main city square. It seems like the City Hall with its clock tower is carefully overlooking the people gathering below. In the center of the square there is a plague monument. It stands in memory of the devastation caused by the 1680-1681 plague which claimed the lives of approximately one fifth of Maribor’s population.

Maribor is a truly photogenic city and it still stands on my photo-shoot list. But then again - what doesn't? ;)

A Summer view of Ljubljana

I consider myself lucky for being able to go to work by bicycle every day. I work just across the city center. Because Ljubljana (the capital of Slovenia) is a relatively small city, it is not very far. It's about a 25 minute ride each way.

It takes me a little less in the morning (I am always in a hurry) and a bit more in the afternoon (I usually take time to enjoy the city center beat).

From time to time I take my trusty camera with me. There is always something that catches my attention. Sometimes it's an interesting detail on one of many old buildings I haven't noticed before and sometimes it's a hot babe strolling by.

Well here are some of the photos from the other day. Enjoy!

The bunny saga continues

It has been some time since I have posted about the bunny nursery project (actually it was just two posts back). I think the only right thing to do is to finally share some info on the subject.

Every day since my post the little orphan bunnies had a couple meals of goat milk. We didn't know this until recently, but the only two appropriate kinds of milk for little bunnies are supposed to be goat and cat milk. It has been purely by chance that we have used goat milk. Lucky little bunnies!

Well to be precise, only some of the lot. As you probably suspect by now, I have to tell you that not all of them made it. That's life.
After five days or so, four of them just stopped moving. We were sad, but have been expecting something like that. Then after another couple of days another one went to bunny heaven.

That leaves us with four of the nine little bunnies. Now they also like to eat clover and have also learned to drink milk from a special container, so we don't have to hand-feed them anymore.
You can see one of the four musketeers on the photo below. Quite a change from two weeks ago, isn't it?

If someone is interested, how the star of the previous post's photo session is doing, I must tell you that it is also among the lucky ones - still very much alive and kicking. It seems that being a photo model doesn't hurt too much after all. :)

It is still not certain that these remaining four will live to grow up, but I guess their chances are better every day.
