near macedonian square

It seems that 'hanging out at a cafe with friends' is a major form of entertainment for Macedonians. No wonder there are bunches of cafes near Macedonian Square, which is the center of Skopje. They hang out there after lunch before dinner. Lunch time in Macedonia is after work, like 4 or 5pm.
There is good coffee and tea, like cappuccino, espresso, herb tea, or whatever, which is a lot relief to me. There is even Macedonian tea, which tastes like a mix of mint and camomille(I guess).

街の中心、マケドニア広場の近くにはこれでもかというほどカフェが並んでいて、夕方になると人がたくさん集まってくる。
マケドニアでは、カフェで友達とだべるのが一番のエンタメだという。
マケドニアのランチタイムは会社が終わってからなので、4時とか5時くらいに家に帰って食べる。
そして、夕方カフェに出かけて友達に会って、夜遅くにディナー。
マケドニアではトルココーヒーが普通だと聞いていたけど、スコピエではちゃんとエスプレッソもカプチーノもあります。マケドニア茶なるものもあるんだよ。
アイスもおいしいし(モルジブではアイスクリームがおいしくなくてちょっとつらかったからね)。
十分生きていけそうです。

Nahomi, Skopje looks nice. Get used to having coffee everyday at least three times a day at a cafe... it's part of the culture :) see you soon neighbor.
