1. Macedonia Hiking with family

    Sonia and Tosho; friends that became instant family.  Hiking was a great way to learn about each other and our different cultures.

  2. Macedonia True love; a girl and her dog

    Dimbo was his name and he was my best friend throughout pre-service training! 

  3. Macedonia Making Ivar

    This was our very first experience with making Ivar, a red pepper spread.  It is a day long process and once the Americans got out of bed, our host father took a lot of pride teaching us the whole process.  Other than spending great quality time together, eating the end result was the best part of the day!!

  4. Macedonia A ride around the neighborhood

    This picture took place during our first month living with our host family.  My host mother told me something in Macedonia and, as usual, I had no clue what she was saying, but followed her out the door.  What a fun surprise to see our chariot waiting to take us for a ride around the block!
