Week in review: 19 - 25 August

  • Walked from Trpejca to Sveti Naum, had some boat rides, tried makalo (a local Ohrid garlic dip) and the usual Macedonian fare (baked beans, salads upon salads), then back to Skopje.
  • Worked on some small OCDS Cove things, mostly from home.
  • Checked out the vegan cafes which were finally open again after their summer holiday.
  • Finally abandoned my old threadbare grey and black flower-patterned tights which I got from the SHRUB in Edinburgh a million lifetimes ago. They are cosy and warm, which I do not need at the moment, and they do not roll up small. And they're disintegrating.
  • Finished re-binge of seasons 1 to 8 of Red Dwarf.
  • Bussed from Skopje to Sofia, too late to catch a connection to Plovdiv. Spent an awful loud-people-in-the-next-room impaired night there, then caught the earliest available bus to Plovdiv the next day.
  • Settled into Plovdiv; climbed Nebet Hill and wandered around the old town.
  • Finished A Wizard of Earthsea.
  • Watched most of Another Life.
  • Then climbed Danov Hill.
