It's almost 3:30 p.m. in Ljublijan and about time for the sound check -

Interesting venue - Arena Stožice – a brand new multi-purpose arena opened in August, 2010

Slow your roll.
Tonight’s gig is only the second show ever at the Arena Stozice and the house are literally still getting the dust off.
It’s going to be a long day in Ljubljana.

What a difference a few hours makes. The venue is starting to shape up and it’s almost time to head to the hotel and grab the band.

Morning Ljubljana and fall has arrived with a fog. This is the kind of city one could walk around in for days.

We just came back from Ljubljana, it's little less than 2 hours drive to Zagreb.

The show was great, the band (and audience - welcome back to the Balkans!) really happening - much laugh tonight between Leonard and band members. The tour in its finishing phases is really more or less now so relaxed that they're in for good time and laughing, playing without single wrong note.

Much echo in new, half-finished arena - from first row we heard all music coming back to us, refracted from the roof. The first song had strange sound - you can hear it on the video, but it improved with The Future; still, echo remained.

Only now, back home, the sadness creeps in. It is really the end...? I wish good show to UHTC tomorrow in Bratislava (no day off), and to Jarkko, our webmaster, who today decided he will attend the closing of the European tour.

More later, one of these days... Now when tour forever leaves Europe, it will be time to write texts about this years shows (I'v seen 4 since July), new songs, collct memories, listen to the recordings and make it all to precious memories.

Btw, three new songs rocks.

No, that's us, Forum members and Croatian fans, in first row! Big THANK YOU to Mr. Mladen (Siple Events agency) for giving us best seats even until the last week!

Dearest man,
we have been sharing your peace and your passion
we acknowledge it as simply as the fact that you breathe.
Yet when time after time you give us all you've got
I wonder how you are and
try to feel between the lines of why it feels so good
for you to be alone.
All is right. Your smiling face.

thank you for yet another unified experience of love, this fourth time in my home town of Ljubljana,
love, Julija

Morning after the last show, I have to say it's much harder. I think I will have to do the similar thing I made after my first show in July 2008 (what I thought will be my only one) - not listen to LC for a month or so... And try to keep sane:)
