Flag of Macedonia  ,
Wednesday, August 10, 2005

Hmmmmmm. Not much to report on Skopje. This Dutch girl we met said Skopje was nice but then she hated Bulgarians so we know where her taste was!

No Macedonian grannies and the youth hostel was a massive ripoff!

Bit of a shithole really. There is an old Turkish Bridge which was shut for a while. It had police all over it. I think they were looking for a dead body in the river. The person probably had lived in Skopje too long.

There is a Turkish bazar area which is mildly ok and a Feudal Tower which now houses a Memorial room for Mother Teresa who was born in Skopje. She had the right idea and left!

There was also the clock tower which stopped at the time an earthquake struck in maybe 1963 I think. We took a photo.

European prices for god knows what.

oh - there are the ruins of a fort too which has been made into a park. And we went into a church which was built half underground because at the time churches couldn't be higher than mosques.

Skopje - You're not missing much.
