So.....I have been waiting for the spring weather (and for my foot to heal) to get out and start fitness walking again. I met up with my friend Tanja, who showed me the way to the City Park and the riverwalk from my apartment. And, for the first time since I have been here, I laced up my sneakers and went out for a workout.
In about 15 minutes, I can be in a lovely oasis in the heart of the city. (The City Park is the city's largest green space)
And, did I mention there are many carts from which to purchase macchiattos?! (for 60 MKD - about a dollar)
|Ready for a workout! Behind me is the stadium Phillip II - home of the national and local football/soccer teams|
|yummy smoothie for a treat|
|there is a great bike path and a running path along the Vardar River - on the top of that hill you can see the US Embassy|
Now that I know the park is so close to our apartment (!) we can go to the playground after we get our homework done.
So, the next night I brought my daughter there. We didn't have too much time, but we'll be back!
