Time Event
my former balcony

my balcony

I'm sure I'll get no sympathy for this but... This was the view from the balcony of the room I was originally in. Due to inclement weather and some other travel mishaps, we arrived in Fiesa sometime after 1 in the morning. Reception had closed at 10pm, so the night guard simply handed out keys to us and I wound up in this lovely room overlooking the sea... Which, alas, I had to relinquish the next morning, since it was a triple and I was supposed to be in a single...

But as you can imagine, it's not exactly a hardship, this translation workshop overlooking the Adriatic...

This is the view from the room I'm currently in. No balcony any longer, alas, but being invited in for a week on the coast to talk with other poet-translators about poetry... well, not having a balcony is not exactly something to complain about.

Tomorrow we read from our translations (and originals) in Izola, and on Friday we give a public reading in Ljubljana.

I also have an event for the Slovene edition of AMIGOS & VECINOS on Saturday afternoon.

Today I did a quick interview for a magazine piece that ties in to the kidzbook, which will be published next weekend after I've already left (though I've asked for them to send me a copy).
Piran wall

This is a shot of Piran, and the wall above the town (which looks like a castle but isn't). Piran is a kilometer away from Fiesa, where we are, and is the nearest town, a lovely former Venetian area where we've wandered over almost every day for dinner and/or shopping. (Today a huge thunderstorm blew in, which also wreaked havoc on my getting the wifi signals from within the hotel for some reason, but anyway, we stayed in this evening, and I even wrote 500 words on a new kidzbook...)
