For the last run of the day, I went all the way to the top of the mountain.

Hurrah, the Slovenian bar staff from fest alm are drinking in here tonight, I seem to recall them being great fun: memory was accurate, they are great conversation. I got distracted for a couple of hours first however talking to a Bosnian chap. Deeply interesting fellow doing his best to describe to me the intricacies of Balkan ethnic groups.
