Monks watching tourists from a balcony at the ancient
mountainside Monastery of St. Jovan Bigorski

View from my balcony overlooking the Ohrid harbor. Ohrid
is the major Macedonian tourist destination and Lake Ohrid
is the deepest and one of the largest lakes in the Balkans.

Snack break on a school field trip.

Ohrid hilltop with another large ancient fortress, inevitably dating back at least a thousand years.

Political rally in Ohrid for the upcoming elections.
