Parked the car at this huge shopping complex (although hardly anybody in there) & searched for a nice bite. No, couldn't find a good one. Drove to the harbour area, ahh the sea ! The yachts. Good good.
Restaurants lying along the harbour, chose one & sat. Nice atmosphere, windy & the next table had a black American guy (the accent, we could NEVER miss it) chatted with 2 Miss Slovenes, maybe for the free dinner on that night.
We finished our meal (me, spaghetti) & I told Ivan that I wanted to change some Tollars. Nice name Slovene currency. Had some money on me, feel good. If Ivan left me I could survive for a week or so.

Ivan explained about 'The lion with an opened book'; listening attentively. He then showed me 'The lion with a closed book', a bit further from the first lion. Thanks Ivan.
Where next ? I told Ivan my plan & he disagreed. He said Piran & Portoroz we could do in one day. Then, we shall see. Thanks Ivan (not agreed with him at all but he's the driver).

Next Portoroz with me in the car, thinking about some excitements I would see there.
Don't forget to wander arounf Koper medieval town. Some of the houses & churches still carry the oroginal structures &... more travel advice
