The next day, Ana and Tim went to visit Ohrid Town. Although Simon and I had already been there the day before, we joined them on the shuttle bus from Lagadin. However, once we arrived in Ohrid Town, we separated, and the two of us went to a station. There, we waited for a bus to Bitola, in Pelagonia Valley.
On the bus to Bitola
It was a rainy day, but we took our chances.
The bus ride was kind of bumpy and our bus to Bitola wasn’t that new, but it didn’t really matter. The road was pleasant and the scenery was beautiful, though once it started raining, we couldn’t see that much out the windows.
Luckily, when we arrived in town, the rain had stopped and we could wander on the streets.
Walking through Bitola
Bitola is a nice, small, old town, which kind of reminded me of Romania’s Sibiu. It would have been nice to discover more of it, but the pestering rain limited our exploring.
We took cover from the rain in the old bazaar. Simon was mesmerized by it: so much variety, so many colors, with such an old, traditional feeling! I, on the other hand, was quite amused: their bazaar looks almost the same as the market I have next to my home. However, maybe for an urban German guy, that means exotic…
