Watch out on eBay for the first translation of the Bible into Slovenian, a crystal bowl studded with Euro-style stars, and an XTR-equipped Cult hardtail.
Slovenian President Danilo Tuerk and Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa gave the prezzies to President George W. Bush during his visit to Slovenia.
According to a press release from the Protocol of the Republic of Slovenia, Bush received the bike from Sportna Vizija, “one of the most renowned bicycle brands in Slovenia.” One of?
The largesse wasn’t all one-sided. Tuerk received from Bush a Collection of Works by our Country’s Founding Fathers. Watch out for that one on Slovenian eBay.
The bike gift was the choice of Jansa, a cyclist (yet another world leader who cycles).
“Selection of the bicycle for the present was obvious since both politicians are cyclists,” said a press release.
“We are sure that the new bike will serve President George W. Bush well, our only hope is that he will take some time and ride his new bike while in Slovenia and experience it from behind the handlebar.”
