September 13, 2017 - We're back in Ljubljana after a whirlwind tour of Slovenia.
We attended a concert, and settled into the apartment. We feel a little less
like tourists, and a little more like locals. We shopped at the local supermarket,
and just meandered around the old town and surrounds.

monuments, also known as The Fountain of Three Carniolan Rivers, stands at the
edge of the Mestni trg square. It was created between 1743 and 1751 by the Venetian-born
sculptor and architect Francesco Robba (1698-1757), who spent most of his life in Ljubljana
and is considered to be the city's greatest Baroque master sculptor working in stone.
