September 17: Skopje

Another warm day in Skopje. Today it reached 98 degrees and with no clouds!! Fortunately there is plenty of places to get out of the sun and it is not a riding day.

A group from all over the US and Canada have now arrived ready to explore the country of Macedonia. Orientation meeting is complete followed by a lovely Macedonian dinner in an old former Ottoman hotel. While the hotel no longer serves as a place of rest the first floor harbors a great restaurant serving local cuisine. Excellent way to meet the others from the trip and have a casual get together. Tomorrow starts the riding!
