During the time (March 21 – April 2, 2014) that I spent at the Jozef Stefan Institute, I have analyzed social chat networks, as well as the aggregations of nodes into communities. The common analysis through the graph theory is replaced by the simplicial complexes approach due to its essential advantages of in-depth analysis, and accordingly, new network variables (local and global) has been introduced. Around noon, with the other PhD student I went to lunch during which we were exchanging experiences about the similarities and differences in the work at our Institutes. Most of the time I spent with my supervisor Prof. Dr. Bosiljka Tadic, who gave me an excellent guidance through my research, but above all, was an excellent host. At weekends everyone went hiking at nearby mountains, and hence, following their example, in the company of Prof. Dr. Bosiljka Tadic I visited Lake Bled, and spent a wonderful afternoon surrounded by the Alps. In my spare time I had a city guides, namely, my colleagues at the Institute had showed me the city sights that reveal the rich history of the city.
