If you look just north of Greece, in the middle, between Bulgaria and Albania, you’ll see it. It’s small, only 9,928 square miles. That’s a shade larger than Maryland; Oregon is almost 10 times larger than Macedonia. In other words, you could fit almost 10 Macedonias into the state of Oregon.

This is where I’m going in 5 days, after staging in 4 days. I’m excited because I haven’t been in this part of the world for 40 years, and I have longed to return. I’m also stressed because, after stuffing my luggage to the max, I still have more things that haven’t made it in, like a lot of yarn. And the days of oversized personal bags seems to be over. But as long as I have my computer, my binoculars, and my camera, I’ll be fine.
