The view from our window at Ciflik winery this morning was beautiful. Fall has definitely arrived in Macedonia.
Today was a travel day. We relaxed at Ciflik Winery until checkout time when we had a taxi ordered. As we were waiting for the taxi we had a conversation with the owner of the winery, Filip. He had fond memories of his time as an exchange student in Enid, Oklahoma. I would recommend Ciflik Winery to anyone who wants to visit Macedonia
Our bill at Ciflik for two nights inclusing breakfast, two dinners including a bottle of wine each night plus olive bread and wine each afternoon was just $244. What a great bargain.
Our taxi took us across the border into Greece to the train station in Florine. The distance was about 22 miles and cost us $45. We waited about 3 hours for the train that took us to Thessaloniki. It was a lovely day so sitting, reading and knitting was quite relaxing.
We arrived in Thessaloniki about 7 and took a cab to our hotel which overlooks the water.
For dinner we had moussaka, sardines and ouzo at a table overlooking the water and people strolling along the waterfront.
