Margo (Margarita) is leaving early Saturday morning, June 30, for a 2-week trip to Northern Ireland. She and Maria, her daughter, are going with another Sheila (her husband, Jerry, works with Brane). Sheila is going back to Ireland and has invited Margo & Maria to take some vacation time with her in Belfast.
This is Margo's and Maria's first time on an airplane, but they are excited about the opportunity to see another part of the world.
Arville, Mary Beth, & I drove to Gostivar yesterday, Thursday, to visit with Brane and Margo before she leaves. Her clinic closed at 3 pm and we drove up in the mountains outside Gostivar for a wonderful lunch together.

It was so good to be where it was cool. We ate outside and enjoyed the gorgeous view together.
It has been in 100 F. all week in Skopje. We could not believe how cool it was -- in the low 80s F.
What a wonderful restaurant, too!! The owner has made additions every year for the past several years. It started out as a coffee bar, and now it is a "fish restaurant." They raise trout and actually have the trout "farm" on the restaurant property. The man catches the fish with a net and cooks it like you want.
We finished having lunch about 6:30 pm, and returned to Skopje.
Back In Skopje:
Mary Beth to meet up with Sara and Jehona for a concert (Pink) at the stadium. We arrived in Skopje around 7:30 pm and the concert was to begin at 9 pm. However, the concert did not actually begin until 9:45 pm.
