A VERY small town, Sutivanic, was where Vesna was born and grew up. We stopped to pick up some rare cheese from one of her thousands of cousins. Of couse, she knew everyone in town. White house on left is where Vesna's mom was born. Vesna was born in house down the hill.

Postojnska National Park has a huge cave we went in by underground train. The cave had over 21 kilometers of passages and halls. We were underground for 1 1/2 hours and the scenery was spectacular. We then climbed around Predjama, the largest cave castle in the world.

In preparation for the Vienna Octoberfest, we had dinner with FeneTech at a beer hall. Afterwards we wandered into a pub and had a local treat; Black Pig. This is a concoction of the finest Scandinavian licorice marinated for months in vodka. One of the most disgusting shots we have experienced......
We visited the American military cemetery where over 5000 soldiers rest. The casualties buried here are predominantly from the Battle of the Bulge. General George Patton is also interned here in front of all his men. My father served in Patton's 3rd army (95th division, 377 regiment, Company H) and fought in the bloody battles of Metz, Saulaurten, and the Rhineland campaign to capture Dortmund. Today was a strong reminder of those who sacrificed for our freedom.
