republic of vevchani

"Republic of Vevcani" is actually a municipality of Republic of Macedonia. But they had strong tendency to be independent, even once held a referendum. They even have a passport and money. Well, it is actually a passport and money for tourists for the famous Vevcani carnival, which are held in January every year. In 2008, it will be from January 12 to 13. About the carnival, you can see this information: http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/326486/
I gotta go and check out. Is it like as much ethnic as Galicka svadba??

「ベフチャニ共和国」は実はマケドニア共和国の中のひとつの地方自治体なのですが、けっこう独立心が強くって、その昔、住民投票でマケドニアから独立して「ベフチャニ共和国」作りたいとか言ってたこともあるらしい。パスポートとかお金までまで独自で作っちゃったりして。というか、このパスポートとお金は実はベフチャニのカーニバルに来る観光客用なんですけどね。ベフチャニのカーニバルはそのエスニックさがけっこう有名みたいです。http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/326486/
村中が「舞台」状態になるようです。次回は2008年の112-13日らしいので、これはちょっとひとつ見に行かないとなりませんなあ。ガリチニックの結婚式もよかったもんなあ。
