Taking a Saturday break

last friday, i bused down to macedonia for the weekend to visit friends... saturday was a gorgeous day and we hiked in the mountains followed by a wonderful dinner of fresh trout in a mountain restaurant... it was a great way to clear out the cobwebs and refresh myself after a week of unaccustomed office work...

this weekend, i'm hanging out in the apartment here in prishtina and just can't get my head around all the unpleasant news that never stops pouring forth from my intertubes... yeah, i'm reading it but i can't seem to work up the motivation to post any of it, certainly not when it's the same ol', same ol'...

i'm also trying to wrap my head around the fact that this coming thursday is thanksgiving... last thanksgiving, i had come from here in kosovo to visit macedonian friends and cooked them a genuine american thanksgiving dinner... where does the time go, eh...?
