On Tuesday evening, our group was escorted to nearby Piran, Slovenia for a walking tour and dinner at a locally owned and operated restaurant. On our tour, we learned about the significant influence of Venice on the Slovenian Coast.
We walked up a steep alley to the main church overlooking Piran and enjoyed a great view of the main piazza. This area was once part of the harbor, but was filled in.
Facing south by the church, we had a view of the Slovenian Istra Coast.
To the north lies the Port of Trieste and Italy.
After visiting the church, we walked through parts of the old city.
We walked past the small central market. It was closed and like other open spaces, is a place for meeting people.
There were many beautiful views of the sea.

I am also a Fulbright Scholar and will deploy to Montenegro in September, 2014 where I will collaborate in teaching and learning about food and culture as well as food tourism. This blog is dedicated to sharing my experiences in Montenegro with you. It is also dedicated to my son Chad who mixes artistry and savvy in teaching people how to bake bread and make pizza.
