how much can you tolerate?

Thats the question you need to ask yourself if youre staying in this country. How much can you tolerate? Everything is snail slow except for the psycho minibus drivers and that has even been removed. When i say everything i`m referring to the government and their system, how things are run and their mentallity.

What was the longest you ever waited to get your passport or identification card done? 30 minutes?(HELL NO), 1 hour?(NOT EVEN A CHANCE), 2 hours?(PRAY YOUR LUCKY STARS), 3 hours?(YOUR LUCKY IS AS GOOD AS STRIKING THE LOTTERY), is it 4 - 5 hours? or MORE?

How long does it take to call your name, input your data, verify it and get your photo taken? Why does it always take so damn blardy long? And why does it all close during lunch hour? The government sector seen by many as unproductive and inefficient. Even with the installation of new technology and high-tech equipment they are still slow. Why is the mentallity of those working in these sectors so behind time? Don't they know that time = money and money = time. You have to waste one whole working day just to get either passport or identification card done.

Why do we have to waste so much of our time when it can be spent doing more productive work which equals to more money gained and less time wasted!!!!!

Imagine the I/C department can only process 200 - 300 applicants a day only not more but less. It takes them longer than an 1 hour to process less than 50 applicants. I know there are many people out there who share this frustration with me that it is time wasting and mentally it PISSES THE HELL OUT OF YOU. People with this sort of mentallity manning these counters, there is really little anyone of us can do but just sit and wait our sorry ass's that our system is so screwed up.

Postjona Caves

The entrance of Postojnska Jama

The old entrance building on the right side is from the time, when Slovenia belonged to Austria and the cave was called Adelsberger Grotte.

Map of Postojana Cave

Two-seater carriages

"Human Fish", proteus anguinus, a creature adapted to the eternal subterranean darkness. The human fish is up to 30 centimetres long and has no eyes—it does not need them. It has no protective pigment either, and its skin is a similar colour to that of Caucasian human beings—hence the creature’s name.

Souvenir shop in the cave.

Exit to underground train station
