Merry Christmas from the Balkans

This Christmas I'm visiting the Balkans again. It is a largely undiscovered but very exciting region of Europe.

A change of name

On Saturday I visited Skopje, the capital of Macedonia. Next month their country will finalize their name change to the Republic of Northern Macedonia.


From Skopje, I travelled north to Prishtina, the capital of Kosovo where I had dinner with four students who have become outstanding leaders in the free software movement in the region.
