Maeve and I waited for the 10.45 bus, but it never arrived, so we tried to get the 11.15 bus. This driver was not happy to see the dozen of us wanting to get on. He was really cranky. The price was 1920 (he typed it on his calculator), I gave him a 5000 note and only got 2100 change!! I told him that it wasn't correct, he wasn't fussed and didn't seem to know any English. I then indicated that he can have his ticket back and I'll have my 5000 tollar note back, no such luck. I was so pissed off with him. This was when I wish I knew a few words in his language, which was either Croatian or Slovene. He did the same to Meave and has made himself 2000 tollars. An hour later we arrived in Postojna and walked the 1km to the cave entrance. Theses are the most visited caves in Europe and were discovered in the early 1800's. We got a little train that took us deep into the cave system. The cave was nice and cool, a big difference to the 30+ degrees of outside. The train ride seemed too

quick. At the end of the train ride we were split up into language speaking groups and had a guide to take us through the rest of the caves. The caves were huge. We walked across the Russian bridge which was built by Russian prisoners during the war. There is lots of staglamites and stagatites. On the bus ride back, we had a lovely driver who actually bothered to give us the correct change.
