Makedonija is my heart -- after eight visits my friends in Macedonia call me "pola makedonka" -- when they're not calling me "luda amerikanka"!

A Sad Day for All Citizens of Macedonia

President of the Republic of Macedonia, Boris Trajkovski died 26 February 2003 in a plane crash in Bosnia. He was on his way to an economic conference in Mostar when his plane crashed in the mountains. He had been president of the Republic of Macedonia since 1999.

Our condolences to the citizens of Macedonia for their loss.

    Lately, we have seen so many tourists comming to Sv. Jovan Bigorski dressed like in discotheque. It seems times of grace are over forever. Really pity.

    I enjoyed your Macedonian pages, hope that next time you visit your friends you will have the chance to cross the border and see some beautiful places in Bulgaria too.
