Highlights of Eastern Macedonia

Our last day in Macedonia was relaxing. We woke up rather late, and then our Macedonian friends gave us a tour. While Western Macedonia has Ohrid and some beautiful mountains, Eastern Macedonia is more farmland and country. This doesn't mean that it wasn't beautiful. We took pictures by the lake, went to a fish restaurant, and saw the centers of the nearby 'cities'. One thing we noticed is Macedonia's obsession with frappes. They drink them all the time. 11 PM? Why not go to a cafe for a frappe? We also stopped by another friend's house whose entire family is Deaf. It was great to meet some people that have been immersed in Deaf culture since birth. The all have GREAT sign language.

BH can fly!

NOTE: If you ever travel from Strumica to Sofia, know that not having a bus on Sunday at 3 AM really means that there is no bus on Monday at 3 AM. We found this out the hard way, and had to go first to Skopje and then on to Sofia. Rough.
