2007 Macedonia, Ohrid
September 27-October 14, 2007

October 4

After lunch at Skopje, we left for Ohrid. We reached there around 5:00 p.m.

A World Heritage site, and the country’s most beautiful city, Ohrid is located in southern
Macedonia, on the western shore of the immense and lovely mountain lake of the same name.

In the lakeside park, stands a statue of St. Cyril and St. Methodius, who developed the Cyrillic script, translated the Bible in the Slavonic language, and evangelized the Slavs.

Boris Kidric is the main street leading from the lake into the center of the town. It is lined with major hotels, cafes and travel and tourist oriented businesses.

Town’s people reflect considerable diversity.

President of Macedonia had at one time stayed at Flamenco Donco, where we spent the night. It was a small hotel, but well equipped in modern amenities. Its dining room was on the first floor, and the reception desk and rooms were on the second floor. We found a unique arrangement of

towels on our beds. Also, the bathroom was euipped with a speaker making it possible for us to
listen to the TV.
