Walking Macedonia, Day 6 (Oct 2013)

Walking Macedonia, Day 6 (Oct 2013)

crossroads to Kavadarci

Heard wolves howling in the middle of the night.

There is a mammal that comes out at night that I have heard through out the Balkans. We call it the ‘night squirrel’. It seemed to complain about the wolf this evening.

A man and 12 dogs came out of the forest, hand out stretched and a big smile. He sat in the hay and observed our morning packing efforts. I asked him if he heard the wolf and where did he sleep last night. He just shrugged. His woolen clothes were shades of green. It rained a lot yesterday and I wondered why his clothes were dry. We now call him the ‘werewolf’.

Road walking

Konopishte new friend/tractor man picks us up in his tractor and decides that we need to get off the mountain.
