Welcome to my blog. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Pinelopi (some may also call me Penny, hence the title). I come from Greece and right now I live and work in Metlika, Slovenia. After half a year here and with another half to go, I thought that some of you might be interested to get an insight of what life means here for a foreigner.
A lot of you might have heard and some of you might not that there are currently two volunteers working in the MC Metlika I and Alen who is from Bosnia. We came here to work on a project relating with the local farmers and the promotion of their work and their products. Personally I am trying to use this opportunity to work on promoting the cultural heritage of this area and this blog is a step further on collecting and showcasing information about Metlika and the people who live here.
So stay tuned and please feel free to contact me with comments and suggestions. I am really interested in exploring as much of this place as possible and your contribution would mean a lot to me. What you will probably see posted here includes all kinds of recipes made by local products, parts of nature and history that I find interesting, farming procedures and pretty much anything that I find interesting, peculiar or even awesome in the area.
