35048. ... was followed by the Članska vas staple, the barbecue.



35050. Čevapčiči on a plate, close view - the best dish there is for many, a somewhat different story for the others.



35051. Gregor is recounting his wonderful cave digging experience on Mt. Rombon, years ago. We were advancing in the solid rock, half a meter per hour, the end of the narrow meander was in sight all the time, excavated material was falling down by itself. In short - Milina! (pure pleasure).

35057. A few weeks ago Žan installed a small school board, last week Klok brought a few pieces of colored chalk and today Marjan used it to draw a heart and an arrow. Žan, naughty as ever, did not need much time to add two names to the heart, as can be seen certainly not what Marjan had in mind.
