Good news for all of us, who like eating well. On May 17th Ljubljana launches the largest culinary event in town – the Food market. The event, which will take place every Friday, through October, is a unique project, the first freshly prepared food market, which will allow more then 50 of the towns best caterers to showcase their meals, and enable us, the amateurs, to learn something new and fill our bellies with various delicacies.
The cooking pots are sure to smell of local cuisine and foreign specialties. Market upholds the principle of cooking without competition, so each stand will be a story onto itself, and will offer a unique experience of flavors.
Oh, I nearly forgot, the market will take place at Pogačarjev trg in Ljubljana’s market.
Let the cutlery sound and let the dance of taste buds begin… ENJOY YOUR MEAL!
Instead of canvases, Russian photographer and artist Aleksander Khokhlov, uses human faces for his art, painting various black-and-white graphic themes on them. His idea is unique, Aleksander chose organic human forms instead of conventional media as a basis for his creation.
Take a look at these unique graphic photos, called “Strange beauty”.
The simplicity and subtlety of female faces presents the onlookers with a complex optical illusion of a positive and negative space. At first we’re drawn to the graphics black-and-white contrast, but then we slowly start to perceive the emotions and expressions hidden below the paints.
Have you decided which festival to visit this summer? There are a lot to choose from, but Heidi has her sights set on Slovakia. Bažant Pohoda, Slovakia’s largest pop music festival, will take place between 11th and 13th July at Trenčin airport, only about 100 kilometers away from the Slovak capital.
This year, the festivals sixteenth edition, again offers a very wide range of artists, beginning with the superband Atoms for Peace. In addition to Thom Yorke (Radiohead), the band consists of Flea (RHCP), Nigel Godrich (Radiohead producer), Mauro Refosco (R.E.M.’s drummer) and Joey Waronker (Beck). Yorke and the gang are sure to give us a live presentation of their fresh studio album, AMOK. The second headliners, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds also have a new studio album, called Push The Sky Away. The diverse musical bunch is supplemented by Smashing Pumpkins, Buena Vista Social Club, Kaiser Chiefs, Bloc Party and others. Slovenia is once again left without a representative but, the festival will play host to the Dubioza Kolektiv and Kiril Džajkovski, who we are well aware of.
In addition to the five stage concert, the festival also offers a wealth of other content: an amusement park, water games, a relaxation lounge, yoga, good beer, and much more. Are you in? Tickets are already available, so don’t put of buying them for too long and look for Heidi at the festival. In the mornings you can find her doing yoga, in the pool at noon, having a beer in the afternoon, and in the first row in the evening!
I'm a real softie. I often have a problem with saying no, or saying exactly what's on my mind without being politically correct. But I need to toughen up. Because, I know I'll feel better aftewords. And maybe today is the day. So...
I've been thinking... Do you know anybody, that got up this morning happy and went to work with a smile on his or her face? I don't believe I do, because the first day after short spring vacation is the hardest. But hang in there! Summer is just around the corner, you know.
