[August, 2011] This is a village called Kratovo in Macedonia.
Here the guide and the interpreter were very friendly to me.
When the guide found that I was a Japanese, he gave me an extra brochure which other tour members did not get for some reason.
And the interpreter, a young woman is studying Japanese language.
As this is a countryside village, there are not any Japanese teachers, so she is learning it from someone who teaches Korean language to children who can also speak Japanese.
I enjoyed this sort of small conversations and this small village made me a very big impression in the tour.
