Back in April when we looked at the Google map of the Balkans, I found Skopje as the capital of FYROM. Later, I discovered this was an abbreviation for Former Yugoslavian Republic Of Macedonia. This unwieldy name stems from Greece’s insistence that Macedonia only refers to Greek territory. I only wish that sometime around fifteen years ago, The Artist Formerly Known As Prince would have performed in Ohrid, Struga, and Skopje in the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia. It would have been headlined as: AFKAP in FYROM.
Here are some images along the way.

The Natural History Museum in Struga looks just like it did in 1956, even the displays are the same. From the guest book, we were the first visitors in a week.
