new apartment

My third year in Macedonia started. I moved to a new place for a change. It is in a quiet residential area with nice shade from linden trees.

back to skopje

Now back to Skopje. In the 35C world again. In New York, it was very nice climate to enjoy open-air summer stages like movies and dance performance, etc (photo). Here in Skopje, it is too hot to sit in an open-air cafe.

マケドニアに戻ってまいりました。なんとまた35度の日々に戻ってしまいました。 ニューヨークではオープンエアのサマーステージでダンスパフォーマンスとか映画とか楽しむのに気持ちのいい気候だったのに(写真)、マケドニアに戻ってきたとたん汗汗ですよ。オープンエアのカフェに座っているだけでも暑くて汗かきますよ。

trk kafe

Trk Cafe is the first cafe ever in SKopje which specializes in "take-out" coffee. Oooooh. There was no such a concept "coffee to go" in Macedonia except at few cafe like Broz Cafe, but now, the situation has changed. Opening of Trk Cafe is an very epoch-making event in this summer. It has even frappuccino kind, which is also the first kind in Skopje. It is off the Macedonian street.

トゥルクカフェはマケドニアで初のテイクアウトコーヒー専門カフェです。いままでマケドニアには「テイクアウトコーヒー」というコンセプトが(ブロズカフェなどの少数を除いて)存在していなかったのですが、この夏とうとう!  コーヒーのテイクアウトが気軽に出来るようになりました。いえーい。というわけで、トゥルクカフェのオープニングはこの夏一番の画期的なイベントでした。なんと、フラペチーノまであるんですよー。それもマケドニア初なんですー。

A watermill in Vevchani, a village near Ohrid. People near the village bring bags filled with wheat for watermilling. Do not forget to put your name on it.

project on plaoshnik

In Plaoshnik, Ohrid, there is an archaeological excavation project going on. There is a camp for excavation professionals on site. Considering there is a large mosaic floor discovered on the same site, there must be more of old stuff to be discovered.
