  • This is the name of the first neighborhood I lived in in Ljubljana. For a long time I wondered how to translate it into English. A literal, dictionary translation would be "Green Cave", but it's not a cave. In this city there are other names that include "jama", which really means "hole", or in toponyms "quarry". So I lived in Green Quarry.
