I might have showed most of today’s doors in previous years, but not the lighthouse as I was up there for the first time, and not the Ferrari. This is Piran on the Slovenian coast, the first place Crystal asked to see.
These are all from one day, Saturday, September 4. After arriving from Tuscany by way of Padua the night before, we had all day to stroll around Piran, swim with mother, climb things, eat lunch in the Bosnian restaurant Sarajevo 1984, mostly ignore a bunch of Ferraris that came in revving, and finally eat lovely dinner that father prepared (and mom bought lettuce).
Even though – I must admit – doors were not the first thing on my mind that week, of course they are everywhere and seeing some was like meeting old friends, so when I clicked I did it in greeting and recognition.
I did (at least) three things for the first time: climb the (small) lighthouse, the (big) walls, and visit the Mediadom, a (mostly) digital museum. The biggest thing to climb – the St. George church tower – remains for the next time. Maybe.
No maybes about this: Piran is pretty and Crystal and Pedro loved it, no matter how on entering it the night before Crystal exclaimed: “It’s full of tourists!”
