Today - Sunday - is my last day in Lechovo. It was a long day. Church began at 7:15 a.m. and finished at 10:45 a.m. I'll spare you the details. Suffice to know that my role during the Divine Liturgy was maximized as the rubrics permitted.
After another wonderful lunch and needed nap, I was given a private tour of Lechovo’s museum by the mayor and vice-regent of the "county." It’s a collection of local artifacts ...

... went to photograph a small monastery nearer to lake level. To most of the locals, the area was a beach used on a Sunday afternoon. We were off at 1335.
We were 96k from Bitola but had things to do on winding roads. Daniela will not be with us tonight. Got an overview of tomorrow, passport day heading to Greece. Bit dozey which I will attribute to the beer.
We climbed for a half hour for a view of the lake. This narrow road was not meant for bus ...
