My visitor's office here is a pretty clear upgrade, however. First, the building is right next to the Dragon Bridge, probably Ljubljana's most famous and scenic bridge. Here's a view of the bridge from the river:
And here's a rear view of one of the dragon statutes, with the law school in the background:
It is also right next to the daily farmer's market, which is completely nuts and deserving of a forthcoming post of its own. Suffice it to say that the surrounding neighborhood is pretty cool.
The building itself is a renovated printing factory. Here's the front door:
Still, when I came for my tour I was a little apprehensive. At the University of Tennessee we have sometimes put visiting professors in windowless rooms or even in the same office suite as George Kuney (I kid, I kid), so a pretty building does not guarantee a decent workspace for the year.
I think it is fair to say that my office exceeds my expectations. It is on the top floor and looks out directly upon the bridge. Here's the view straight out:
In the distance you can even make out the cloud covered Julian Alps:
And the windows are huge:
So yeah, so far so good office-wise. Productivity-wise is a different story, so back to work!
