London Town

We went to London (together with Alpin and Lile) for the 24-7Prayer ILG (International Leaders Gathering)and then spend 5 days in Guildford visiting the community there. Me and Alpin we stayed with the guys from the Transit team and really had a great time hanging out with them. Such a great bunch of people. And about London. What can you say about London? You can not but love it. At least me. I really enjoyed walking through the center of the city,(it takes a lot of walking) big crowds, theaters, pubs, shops, double deckers, fish and chips, beer, yeah! OK, I'm not going to talk too much, I will put few photos and you can see for yourself.

Big Korab (2754 a.s.l)

Every year for the Day of independance, the Mountain Club Korab organizes a hike to the highest peak in Macedonia called Big Korab (2754 a.s.l). Last year I could't go but there was no way I was going to miss that climb this year. The climb is not very hard but still demanding and on some places the trail goes pretty steep. After 3.5 hours I reached the summit and stayed there for one hour before descending. On the way up most of the time we were walking through low clouds and mist but on the way back the view was simply amazing. When you stand on the top you have Albania on one side of you and Macedonia on the other. They say that around 1100-1200 people came for the climb (most of them reached the top)of whom 390 were people from other countries. I love the mountains.

Johnny Cash

One album that I really enjoyed listening lately was the latest Johnny Cash album called American V: A hundred highways. It was released in the beggining of July so it is pretty new. It's from the material he was recording very shortly before he died. In my opinion the album is really thrilling especially if you like Johnny Cash. Two of the songs are his and the others are covers from other artists. His voice is fragile but brings a meaning and gives weight to the music. And the production is great like the Solitary Man and The Man comes around. I recommend this cd. Also for those who like Johnny Cash there will be more American albums cause he has recorded a number of songs that will be released later.
