Walked out of Tirana and caught a ride within 5 minutes; after driving through yet another stunning mountain-range my driver pulled into the parking lot of a restaurant. I thought we would go for coffee again, but the first thing that emerged on the table was wine, then bread, vegetables and finally an enormous plate of lamb-meat. It was 11:00… Afterwards he drove me on a city tour through Elbasan and finally fixed a ride for me towards the border with Macedonia.

A short ride with a cab from the deserted border to the first town and one hitch later I arrived in lake-side Ohrid.

(cutting the amount of pictures short due to limited upload capacity)

St.John Kaneo Church from the 13th Century

Your average street in Ohrid (complete with a Yugoslavian Zastava)
Walking along the lake we encountered on a quiet beach a couple of dragonflies who had just gotten out of their cocoon (and therefore sat very still for the picture).
