Back in the Groove

With the luggage-losing nightmare a fading memory, and the two biggest festival days on the Hare Krishna calendar behind me, I am back in my groove. Yesterday and the day before I taught cookery classes to 12 eager attendees.

Both groups were a mix of local Slovenians, along with those that commuted from Zagreb, Croatia, (a two-hour drive) and from Vienna, Austria (a four-hour drive) especially for the course.

Here’s our team sitting down for lunch on Friday.
