Macedonia, or the country that now calls itself Macedonia, was the birth place of two very famous people, Alexander the Great and Mother Theresa. As Kyoko once volunteered at Mother Theresa's orphanage in Kolkatta, India, she was happy to see where this great woman was born.

We enjoyed the area of Lake Ohrid very much. Its old section has beautiful churches on a hillside with a castle at the top of the hill. All of this overlooks the large Lake Ohrid, which is one of Europe's deepest lakes. There are national parks near the town, which makes it a nice place to visit. It is also a World Heritage Site.
