Where I stayed
However it all started quite bad - when we were told that we didn't need to book a bus to Skopje the day before. We did. The bus was totally packed, and we were refused a ticket at 7.15am. However as luck would have it we were not the only ones in that situation, and found some Macedonians to share a taxi with. They would not share equally though, but we did manage to get them to pay a little more than the bus fare they were suggesting. On a positive note, we got to Skopje in less than 3 hours, which meant that we jumped straight on a bus to Nis with 10 minutes to spare at 10:30 - if we had caught the bus we would not have made this connection and would have had to spend a couple of hours in Skopje.
Bus to Nis was pretty full too, we got last two seats together after getting people to swop around.. Then Josefina started to feel ill - fortunately I was starting to feel better.
Arrived at Nis at about 3pm - short walk to our lateroom.com booking at the Yugoslav relic that is the Ambassador - for cheaper than our hostel in Belgrade, we had a private, ensuite room in a prime location. Place was a bit stale and living in the past, but it had a kind of faded charm, bit like Nis itself.
Nis would not be high on my list of must-sees, but it was a decent stopover. We chilled out with our illnesses
