Macedonia

Macedonia, country I identify myself, country I was born and country I visited this summer.There are so many places to visit as Macedonia is very rich with history. I just wish one day we will have more time to travel all over the country, for now we are happy with what we have seen so far.

Macedonia - always in my heart!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your photographs of Macedonia Laura. I enjoyed looking at them the drying chili pepper (you may be interested to see my post tomorrow by the way_, the sliced tomatoes drying on the rooftop too and those traditional pots are lovely. Hope you will go back again and share some cuisine with us
