Where I stayed
The common room of the hostel was friendly and decorated with very bad aerosol art, I was the only one there, and warm, had wi fi, but the dorm was like a very cold prison
Walked on through the cold grey streets, surrounded by cold grey people along the dingy brown river to the old town that was wall to wall crumby shops selling cheap nasty western clothing, alll made in China. Got my shoes repaired for the third time and bought some cheap reading glasses though, that was a bonus. Stopped for a tea and sat outside so I could smoke, no you can't smoke at the outside tables, you have to stand on the other side of the railing and put your tea on the tables, so that was why all the tables were lined up against the railing, live an learn
Back to the bus station to buy a hamburger (where everyone smoked at the outside tables) and catch the bus. Hamburgers in Macedonia are served in paper bags open on two sides, think cone shaped, with great open gaping bread roll 'mouths' stuffed with chips, smothered in mayonnaise and acidic ketchup, with cocktail forks stuck in them to eat the chips until you can close the burger enough to actually bite it. Had indigestion for hours after...yummm. On to the overcrowded, over heated mini bus for some stunning scenery and Lake Orhid, which was a completely different story...
Not my fault if all the pics are grey, it is that kind of place!! I have put all the pics I took up because I just couldn't decide which were the worst...and delete them!
