Ohrid, Macedonia

Redeeming the nasty mess that is Skopje is Ohrid, right next to the Albanian border. (I know I should be telling you stories too, but I just don't feel like writing them all out. I do have some Ohrid stories, which I may or may not tell at some point in the future. Feel free to guilt me about it like you guys did with the toilet story.) Anyway, Ohrid was beautiful. I had actually planned on crossing over into Albania, but that right there is its own little story.

Orthodox Church. I don't remember the name of it and I don't have my guide book with me (sorry). The man inside the church was nice and gave me a tour of the frescos that began in English and cycled through Macedonian, French, and German and ended in Spanish. The crazy thing was that I could follow the entire thing (granted, I had pictures to help. And it was all about saints.)

Another Orthodox Church. The grounds around the church were being excavated by University students.
