1. Our size
We usually complain about how small our country is because it means limited access and opportunities. But when it comes to Tina Maze, Laibach, or even a group of heart surgeons, we’re happy to point out how small we are. Imagine, with only 2 million inhabitants, we have a world champion in skiing; the first Western band that had a concert in North Korea; and doctors inventing new approaches to heart medicine.
