On our last day of our trip to Macedonia we visited the Capital; Skopje. It was a very bright and sunny day and even though we had only a couple of hours there, we saw quite a bit of this very raw looking but friendly city. We had a great time relaxing near the river and counting all the statues of animals and famous people that are everywhere. One of the highlights for me was visiting the Old Bazaar with lot’s of little antique shops, mosques and tea houses were they sold Turkish tea which brought back memories from our trip to Istanbul last year. I was very keen on buying something because I saw so many beautiful old jewellery and textiles but The old bazaar is a tourist attraction as well as a bazaar and that is felt in the prices they ask for their ‘antique’. So instead of buying something I just took lot’s of colourful pictures as a souvenir.
