Hi again.

I will continue about the new experiences in Struga.
News: we moved together with only Barbara, i will have on arrival training from 2th September
on (really early, don't u think) and I will start to work with disabled children
on Wednesday. Even our language course started. Well, the teacher didn't show up yesterday, but that's not too bad...

In Slovenia i fall in love with that country and after coming back i have been happy to get to know coool Slovenian guests of Barbara. Marta, Diana, Jasna, Petra, Mariansa, lovely people. Also my friend from Poland Chris (whom i met also in Serbia last month) came for a visit last week. With them we did nice trips to Ohrid and to the villages near by. They are so beautiful, and actually i started to realize the beauty only last week. Well, better late than never. My favourite is a fishing village called Radozda on the lake, couple of kilometres from Albanian border. The people there seem to be so REAL. Maybe i should move there and marry some fishing man. Not bad at all.

I'm happy i can live with Barbara but now she may actually move away. Yes, these situations change all the time when you are EVS, that's all i can tell now. She is really deep and thoughtful girl, totally lovely. With her and with her boyfriend Sasho who is volunteering in Gostivar we have had coool discussions about, about what? For example about the hedonistic and restless nature of young Europeans. That is my favourite topic. :) I claim that people are not patient to wait, but I may be really similar to them myself. No it feels i have been waiting the work to start for ages. But it seemns so useless just to be here doing nothing, giving nothing back to the people here. Because that's why i came here, to do something, not to save the world but to do something.

We will see what happens, but still, many things are not working how they should here in the organisation. Couple of days ago I had a fight concerning the money I get here, because first they were not willing to pay me enough money for food (it is not SO cheap here). Now they noticed that no matter how sweet Maria looks, she can be a difficult bitch. And now i can eat more. :) Gut so :) Well, EVS is full of stories of projects that don't work, etc, and it seems that the civil servants in Bruessels or where ever don't know what is actually going on. Let's make a revolution, that would be good. I cannot tell so much about the situation, but something may happend. Or then not. I have also changed, being a little bit discouraged. One friend of Barbara, Petra, said that we all look discouraged and that's difficult to watch. First i was thinking I'm sad because I missed Finland and Amsterdam. But this is far more than that, unfortunately. Maybe it will be better, I will have patience to see, i will. Because Macedonia is beautiful, people are friendly and the language is so cool. That is something.
And you cool people there, don't worry about me. I will write you more soon. :)
