Looking for a new room in Ljubljana again

JLP's Blog - Mon, 18/07/2005 - 2:36pm

Yesterday evening my roommate Vito informed me that in the next semester his girlfriend is finally moving in to live with him. This unfortunately means that there is no free bed for me left in the apartment and I will have to join my sister in a search for a new room in Ljubljana.

Anyways, I had a great time in this apartment.
