Yes, it's like a religion. Many (if not most) Slovenes never climb it though.

Didn't he used to be the Roman emperor killed by his son? I saw the film Gladiator again recently.

I haven't seen that movie, however, in reality, he was not killed by any one.

I really don't think so. That statue is a copy, not the real thing, but I guess you cannot touch it.

It's interesting that you can hardly hear Justin Bieber on our radio stations (which is why I don't hate him or anything). But once I listened to him rapping and he was pretty good!

I just got an original 1935 wall map of the Italian East Africa that a colleague of my father almost threw in the trash while cleaning an old library. It's even in pretty good condition for being almost 80 years old.
