This weekend, the team is at Lake Ohrid for a well deserved vacation. Ohrid is a scenic lakeside city in southern Macedonia, and it took about three hours to reach the city. It is an important city is Baltic history – it’s where the Cyrillic alphabet was invented. Ohrid is the only semi touristy place in Macedonia. However, it is catered more towards local tourism. On the other side of this massive lake is Albania. I heard that Macedonia, which is a landlocked country, has one navy ship and it is stuck in Lake Ohrid and it’s to guard the Macedonian-Albanian border.
