. . . have knocked out my internet. It's been gone for a week now, and fixing it has been slow going. But, summer in Skopje is rather slow going. It hasn't been quite as hot as I've been told just yet, but it's getting there. Schools are out, and everyone is rushing off to Ohrid (or Greece, if they're lucky) for a few weeks of vacation.
I'll actually be heading to Ohrid in August for the Seminar on the Macedonian Language, three weeks of classes and lectures with other international students of Macedonian. I've been studying, practicing, and improving. . . so we'll see how it goes.
In other news, I've learned how to play Bridge, and I'm a fiend at it.
