At around 6AM the bus dropped us in Prishtina's bus station. I was quite happy to get out as after the ripoff we had gone through 2 hours earlier (read the end of previous blog) I hadn't been able to sleep because I was too angry. It was good to get out of the tense atmosphere. The plan for the day was to go to Prizren as a day trip.

On the way back, an old man started talking with Ruddel (who, as an american of filipino origin stand out as a tourist here).

Those of you I haven’t heard from in some time, comment, send me a message, let me know you’re out there! Also, I’m now without my laptop—very sad—so all my writing for the next year will be unrevised right out of the head writing, apologies in advance for any errors or omissions Sofia, Bulgaria—July 3rd, 2005 Thinking, pondering, wondering, debating—what do I do next? I’m at a bit of a crossroads. My friends have all had to go their separate ways, and I’ve been in Sofia working on the remainder of my travel plans before August 9th when my Russian visa becomes active. (Note: Tourist visas to Russia are only valid for a 30 day window that you pre-select). I can either continue going east through the rest of Bulgaria, then move into Romania, followed by ... read more
