This is a lake. Cerkniško jezero. And I'm camping on the bottom. Beautiful!
Although I know that it takes at least four rainy days for the water to rise to a certain level and then at least four more days for the water to fill this enormous lake... I kind of couldn't get the flood stream visions out if my mind.
The next day when I walked across the lake, I found traces of a bear. Yes, there are bears around here. Lots of them.
In the village on other side, a man showed me photos of two sheep that were killed last night. "This town is dangerous at night. Many bears." I'm usually not afraid of bears, I believe that they won't bother people, but I noticed that some people try to scare me.
Why?! If it's not for the realistic fears, it's the fantasy-flood-stream-fears that rub me from my sleep.
So please, let's stop scaring each other! Stop the stupid (well meant) warnings that are just a product of your own fears rather than useful advice. And please stop comparing me with a sheep. Really.
