I've just begun my week long meander around lake Ohrid - one of two large lakes that straddle the Albanian/Macedonian borders.
My task for today was simle: get up early enough to finish packing and find my bus. I failed at both. I woke more than an hour later than planned and immediately adjusted to plan B: catch a bus toward Korca, disembark where the highway nears the boarder, and figure it out from there.
I did exactly that: caught a shared taxi to the border junction and the took a private taxi from there all the way to campground rino on Ohrud's northern shore and the first stop of my trip. The whole thing cost about $15 more than the bus, but it only took3 hours (as opposed to 5 by bus).
Judging by the size of the other tents around me, I'm the only backpacker staying here tonight - most of the people here seem to be families car-camping.
