Getting to Macedonia--The Long Way: January 12, 2012

We (Dan, Kali Cat, and me) left our California home at 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 10.  We arrived in Skopje at the Alexander the Great Airport at 1:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 12---36 1/2 hours after we began.  We were supposed to arrive early afternoon on January 11, but the Air France flight out of Seattle left two hours late causing all our connections to be rebooked.  We’re very tired, but we’re here!

Alex Jovanovski met us at the airport and got us and our bags to our hotel.  Alex worked for the ABA in Skopje in the past.  The ABA has hired him to assist in opening this new ABA office.  He will also help us get settled.
