Great holmertz 2022-01-21 6:21

Hello Malgo,
The WS are somewhat more interesting photos, also well composed, but of course the main post is nicer and offers more details to watch, as well as a friendly smile and gesture. You obviously had a nice day, even though I wouldn't really call it an "adventure". It was just the good experience you can have when you break free from the other tourists in the "all inclusive" hotel or the sightseeing tours with a large group, (and possibly a guide with a commission from certain souvenir shops).
Real or fake beduins? What does it matter? They seem to have been nice people and you had a good experience.
Kind regards,
Gert
PS Thanks for your comments today. I deleted the photo later because of a very low quality (and partly because I seem to have shown it earlier). I am sorry for wasting one of your smileys.

Default To holmertz: The most beautiful street

Thank you Gert,


On the map of Bitola, this street seems really narrow, an alley. I was surprised it was so wide.
It was indeed the most beautiful street in Bitola, but the city was also pleasant in other places.

Merchandise was displayed in various places in Širok Sokak and I took a lot of photos, but not every photo is worth showing afterwards.

Could it be that you are a bit biased, just a little bit, about Skopje?
It was the first place where I arrived in North Macedonia and I really liked it.

Best regards,
Paul

Hello Paul,
I can't say that I disliked Skopje, I just wasn't very impressed. Perhaps my negative attitude is mainly due to the "patriotic" changes and additions that have been made in later years, that I have seen on TE. They seem to be made in a rather kitschy and bad taste and painfully nationalistic.
Best regards,
Gert
