    Wait, you live in Ljubljana or in MA? Im from Ljubljana but Ive just spend a year in Worcester MA. I came across your blog by pure chance:-)

      I live in MA now (near Worcester), but I titled my blog while I was living in Ljubljana. How funny that you found it; it seems we’ve switched places!

        This is just gettin really funny:-) A year or so ago I wrote the comment above. I have just found your blog again while looking for places where to get Chai Latte in Ljubljana. I have a similar obsession with it as you. Of course it has been triggered with Starbucks’ chai while I was in the US last year. So I will check out your tips where to get it here. Hopefully the situation has improved since you were in Ljubljana.

        Mojca,

        You’ll have to tell me if things have improved chai-wise since I left Ljubljana! I haven’t been back in a year. I used to buy chai mix at Müller…

        Hoping all is well! :)

    Stumbled across your blog in planning my trip back to Ljubljana for October ’14. I lived there is 92-93, attended Slovene language classes and wrote my undergraduate thesis – a chapbook of poems and translations from Slovene. It would be great to chat with someone who has been, and lived, there more recently.
