The Roman amphitheatre at Ohrid. Apparently the seats used to go all the way down to the stage, but when blood sports became all the rage, the first ten rows were removed to protect the spectators from the action.

The town gate still has a gate!

I suppose if you got bored watching people kill each other you could always just look at the view.

Another walk between countries from Macedonia to Greece. This time it also involved a change in timezones, which I didn't realise until some hours later when I was in Thessaloniki.

There were guards in lookout posts on both sides of the border and Greece was building a big new border post on its side, so it looks like this border will be around for a while yet. George, my Macedonian taxi driver to the border told me that Macedonians need a visa which costs 35 euro to go to Greece. Madness.
