Translation of the previous post: I acted Hamlet-like agonizing whether to spend the weekend in Novi Sad on the Exit festival, or finish some urgent stuff on Saturday and then reward myself with a visit of the village of Kuchica, Karbinci municipality in Eastern Macedonia (map bellow).

It's a remote area of the country, quite poor and isolated. The village is inhabited by Yuruk Turks, who alegedly live very traditionally ("like in 19th century," according to an overheard conversation at the recent photo exibition about them). MCIC helped the villagers build waterworks, so there will be a small celebration at the inauguration.
