Election time

We had Mayor election yesterday. Yep! We could have elected a new mayor in our town, but guess what - we elected the old one that cannot always behave and who has only learned a little how to speak in public over his two mandates of being a mayor. Oh well ... I have no trust or very little in any kind of politics anyway. He's not THAT bad and who knows if his opponent is actually any better. More elegant, yes and a much better speaker and the old one is independent while the one "not meant to be" (obviously) had the support of five parties. Seeing it written just now - maybe he deserves to remain in this position.

The other thing about this election that I find interesting is the new mayor of one of our coastal towns, Piran. I didn't find it that strange, seeing it on the news, hearing him represent himself, hearing people say all those nice things about him. I wasn't astonished or not even surprised to hear that he won the election. But now that I see all those foreign articles, I think to myself: "Well, maybe it is just a little unusual after all". Anyway, he seems to enjoy the trust of many people and that's what matters. He's just as likely to prove them right or wrong as anybody. Don't you think? See for yourself:

etc. etc.


  1. Aaaaand we aer eastern European country, again. Yessss ... :P

    Otherwise I have no problem with it. :)

  2. Yes, I guess we always will be ... And you know, we weren't allowed to travel 20 years ago or have a private company, LOL! And you had to wait for a passport for three months IF you decided to travel anyway... (In my family we all had passports, you got it in a week or two and we travelled a lot and would have more so if it hadn't been for the money).

    Never mind, dear, some things will never change ...

  3. Minka, so nice to see you again. I thought you had closed up shop.

  4. Naaah, I just took a break and it was longer than planned - a severe and acute attack of laziness.... sorry sorry...
    Thanks for stopping by :D

  5. Considering that 50 years ago, blacks in the southern United States weren't even allowed to drink from the same water fountain as whites...apartheid existed 20 years ago in South Africa...that is news. The world is headed in the right direction. Martin Luther King would be proud.

  6. Yes, he would! But a black person here or there just isn't the same. Our history is so different. Besides, I still only see about five black people per year.. you know. They are almost something exotic, lol... This guy seems nice, speaks pretty good Slovenian (and we have cases, conjugation - it's very difficult, compared to English) and I really wasn't surprised.

  7. I'm with you on not trusting in any kind of politics. Guess I'm a little jaded. :} I hope the mayor will end up doing a good job!
