... us off in the middle of town. We were just not about 18km away from the border, but there were no buses that went to the border. Our only options were to take an expensive taxi to the border or to hitchhike. We decided to walk for a bit and see if anyone would pick us up. After trying to flag a few cars down, a taxi pulled up and gave us a decent price so we decided to hop in. His name was Victor and he was very friendly. We enjoyed his taxi ride to the border.

The trip took about 45 minutes as we drove along the twisty lakefront road. We arrived at Sv Naum a bit queasy, but eager to see the sites.
