Steep stairs always make me nervous. Did these stairs spiral or nah? And poor dog, just wanted to be at the top of the world.

I ask about the stairs cause the building I worked in had steep spiral staircases, they never got any easier to climb.
They were tall narrow stone steps spiralling counterclockwise; they didn't worry us as as children, we would swing down on the rope, and were happy that adults tended to avoid them.

I live very close to a historical center of my town with one of two best preserved old squares in Slovenia.


House I live in is not very old but around are mostly preserved buildings, 100-200 years old. This square is 200m away and most houses are 400-500 years old. I wished to live here around because I like this retro feeling.

The colors are beautiful! Do you know if the paint shades are historic or more modern? Either way, they are very striking!

I took a photograph from almost the same position, the last time England played Slovenia in Ljubljana. We stayed in the Hotel opposite "The English" Bar.

My house was pictured in a national magazine--as an example of the damage we had suffered as the result of a major storm :angry:

Shoot. :( Yeah, that's never the way you want your house to end up in print. What sort of storm was it - do hurricanes make their way up to Maine?
