After the mass, I went around the Old Town and took some pictures. I even bought a 2-euro slice of pizza for lunch. During my second visit, it was actually raining but I happened to visit one of the malls in Koper. I even happened to notice a Filipina with her son who smiled back at me as if with the understanding that we were both Filipinos. In Tagalog, she told her son, "Look, it's also a Filipino," while pointing at me. I didn't know whether I would be amused or feel like a monkey inside a cage in a zoo.
Koper is nonetheless a lovely and peaceful place. Their parks are clean and it is basically a place where you can enjoy the best of both worlds, old and new. Among the landmarks I visited in the Old Town was the Praetorian Palace which is actually right beside the Cathedral and the Loggia.
