Skopje [calling]

Despite time spent writing various review's, articles and learning about them on FB, its strange to write about having gone to Skopje (in The Republic of Macedonia). Knowing people though various images, photos (which rarely equals the real thing) and words written into a computer construct - produces ideas that are altered - and transformed with a hand-shake. Hug's and a simple greeting that may or may not be, zdravo [hello].

A few of my fellow passengers on Turkish Airlines.
I had never seen a photo or painting that captured
a moment like this.

A great place to stay.

in the city & country disapprove of this Arch.

Skopje was amazing, a city with many sites and wonders to offer. Its landscape still encompassing the old while rapidly embracing the new. And for a city thats small, I still didn't see all of it in 16 days, but did photograph much of it. Part of what made Skopje so interesting is the people I already knew before coming there.
