monday morning started very early for us, as we didn't really go to sleep :) I had a short nap in the park and Piotrek closed his eyes for ten minutes in the bus to the outskirts of Zagreb. I had checked the place to hitchhike before - I knew exactly were to get out (Lucko) and where to go (gas station), but I didn't remember the way and even with instructions written down it took us at least an hour of walking around through bushes and trying to find the place :(
When we got to the place we bought some cola and pineapple juice (it's actually very strange, cause we never drink it in Poland and now we do it almost every day!) and decided to ask some people if they're going to Ljubljana. And we were amazed, cause the first guy we asked said yes! He was an elderly man, who called himself a Yugoslavian living in Germany and he could speak Serbo-Croatian (I don't know if it's still politically correct to call it one language, but these were his words) some German, a bit of English and a couple of words in Polish). we were talking all the way (though it wasn't a really interesting discussion) and we were using all those languages sometimes all in one sentence :))) Anyway, he took us to the outskirts of Ljubljana, were a very nice lady told us how to get to the centre and even gave us the tickets (they look like little coins).
Ljubljana is also great! Another beautiful city, though much smaller then Zagreb, I think. We left our luggage in the hostel, took a shower and went to the city to see a girl from Hospitality Club, who contacted us before. She showed us the city and we were talking till night, I still don't know how we've managed to do this after not sleeping for soo long... Probably it was beause of the interesting conversation. So after all everything was great, we just wished it wouldn't be so hot...
