Went to the other side of town and found the local market place, they are always interesting. Im obvioulsy the odd one out cause im carrying a Nikon but no one bothers me other than to say hello but not much else, not to much English over here so pretty tough to get into any meaninful conversation but you make do with smiles and gestures, its great to be in their world, I love it.








This guys probably sitting here thinking, "oh times were much better before Tesco or Coles opened"








Some of this stuff actually looks really good, almost make me feel like I should have a better diet ahahah yeah whatever Sheldon.

Headed up the hill and came across this couple having problems with their bike so stopped to earn a few break down credits with a hand, he was actually lucky I had my tools with me his chain was well and truely jammed up in the gears and the stick he was using was never going to do the trick.

Nice views of Skopje from half way up, the cable car to the top is closed on a Mondays so did make it to the top which was a shame but oh well next time.
