Making friends in the neighborhood. Gevgelija, Macedonia.

We always say hello to people as we walk by little curbside restaurants and cafes. This time we were welcomed to join a small table of Macedonian men for a drink and a chat. Next thing we know we were invited to a house to meet the whole family (and extended family), drink some coffees and play with the kids. This family lives in a 600 year old Turkish apartment building with the grandparents living in the suite next door. Interesting to see how people live around the world.
