For somewhat complex logistical reasons, although I actually had business in Kosovo I flew into Macedonia, where the airports now proclaims its historical links with a local hero who was well-known for travelling, though better known for what he did while he was travelling.
The one thing that caught my attention in Kosovo was this poster expressing sympathy for the victims of the Blacksburg massacre, erected by the students of Pristina university - there were lots of these, all over the centre of town (and possibly elsewhere; I was laying low nursing my cold when I wasn't doing essential meetings). On an earlier visit to Kosovo I was struck by posters expressing solidarity with the USA after the 9/11 attacks.
And time for a few shots of Skopje the next morning before setting off on my tourism trail for the rest of the trip. Here are two pictures of the ancient fortress overlooking the city centre, with mosques baths and churches visible in the foreground:
I rented a car for the rest of the trip from Avis in Skopje, and would strongly recommend them - dealt with me efficiently by email, and made no problem about my wanting to return the car to the airport rather than the city centre.
