The American invasion of Quebec (Invasion of Canada (1775)) arrived near his home at Saint-Jean on September 6. On that day, Hazen met with General Philip Schuyler, explaining to him that Fort Saint-Jean was well-defended and unlikely to be taken by siege, and that the local habitants were unlikely to assist the American effort. This gloomy portrait led Schuyler to consider retreating; but the arrival of additional American troops, and a more optimistic assessment from James Livingston (James Livingston (American Revolution)), a grain merchant living near Chambly (Chambly, Quebec), encouraged the Americans to renew the attack.

Slovenia

to their economic success as well as historical and contemporary cultural bonds to Central Europe, they usually don't like their country to be described as part of "Eastern Europe". While Slovenian is closely related to Serbian and Croatian, it is not the same language. Another common misconception is that Slovenia was part of the Soviet Bloc, while it was in fact the northernmost country of Yugoslavia. You can, however, freely discuss these topics; just be aware that you can hear contrasting sides of the story, depending on who you talk to and his her political affinity. There is still a strong division among leftists and rightists. Be careful if entering a discussion on open territorial issues with Croatia or on the Slovenian civil war during WWII and its aftermath. Consider these controversial topics a taboo. There is an active lesbian and gay scene in Slovenia. As elsewhere in this part of Europe, homosexuals are generally safe, although there have been a few reported attacks in the past. Be cautious in the evening and during the night, especially in cities. Women girls holding hands are considered normal and a sign of friendship. Practical advice: * If you are invited to dinner at someone's home, bring a bottle of good wine. It's expected to give a compliment to a cook. Do it before you are asked if you liked the meal! * Slovenians generally wear slippers at home, so take your shoes off when you enter. They will offer you slippers or insist you keep the shoes on. They'll normally be very gracious, knowing that you are a visitor and don't know all of their customs, but try not to be ignorantly callous. * It's normal to shake hands when introduced to someone. Don't try to make a kiss when introduced, though in the younger generation, kissing and hugging is not uncommon between friends. * The Slovenian Alps (especially the highest peak Triglav, named after a Slavic god) are a national symbol. Slovenia is the only country to have its highest peak on the national flag. * Don't litter! * It's common to greet people with ''Dober dan'' (Good day) when you meet in the mountains, and to say ''Srečno'' (Good luck) when you depart. There is a strong spirit of camaraderie in the mountains. * It is also polite to say ''Dober dan'' to people passing by in small towns and villages. * Try to avoid using the phrase, "May you be kicked by a horse!", as it is considered an insult. Connect Telephone The international calling code for Slovenia is 386, and the prefix for international calls is 00; the area code prefix is 0. Some number blocks are reserved for special use: 080 are toll-free numbers and 090 are commercial services, which are usually expensive. Mobile networks use the common European frequencies (900 and 1800 MHz for GSM LTE and 2100 MHz for 3G; 800 MHz is planned for LTE). Two major Slovenian mobile companies, Mobitel and Simobil, provide an excellent coverage in GSM and 3G, but 3G can be unavailable in mountainous regions. Roaming between European phone companies is becoming cheaper due to the EU regulation setting a maximum of 0.29€ per minute for calls made and 0.09€ for calls received, while calls to or from non-EU providers remain expensive. Slovenian pre-paid SIM cards are also available in supermarkets and gas stations. Telekom Slovenije operates around 3500 phone booths. They unfortunately do not accept coins but require the use of cards costing 3-15€. Internet Slovenia is generally well covered by inexpensive broadband internet due to fierce competition between multiple companies. Internet cafes are thus common in cities and internet access is offered by most hotels and hostels. A free wireless internet network is also being set up in some cities by volunteers (Ljubljana Maribor , Nova Gorica). You can use it if you have a computer or a WiFi enabled phone. Postal Services The offices of Pošta Slovenije are ubiquitous. Look for French horn-like signs on dark yellow background. Delivery takes one day within Slovenia, a few days within Europe and (usually) less than two weeks worldwide. DHL is also available. Postal rates Postage for an inland postcard is '''€0.40''' (value of the '''"B"''' stamp); for an inland letter (up to 20g) it is '''€0.34''' (value of the '''"A"''' stamp). Postage for an international postcard is '''€0.56'''; for an international letter (up to 20g) it is '''€0.60''' (value of the '''"C"''' stamp). Postage for an international airmail postcard is '''€1.25''', for an international airmail letter (up to 20g) it is '''€1.29'''. Newsagents or shops selling postcards usually sell stamps, too. If this is not the case, you can always buy them at the Post Office. For airmail, you will have to go to the Post Office and ask for ''prednostno''. You can pay directly at the counter or attach proper stamps. Rates correct as of August 2014. Commons:Category:Slovenia WikiPedia:Slovenia Dmoz:Regional Europe Slovenia
