I traveled to Skopje this past weekend for a meeting for the Environmental Working Group (we are planning a Green Architecture Conference in partnership with a local university), and I had a pleasure of meeting a few Peace Corps volunteers from the previous group. We were productive, but also squeezed in some fun – wandering around the old pazar, and visiting everyone’s favorite Indian restaurant (likely the only Indian restaurant in Macedonia). The food was delicious, the company was delightful and the conversation veered from the usual small talk to the ridiculous. We somehow ended up discussing “flights of fancy”, which is how I coined the question written above. It was suggested that I have a future writing Valentine’s Day cards…hmm. I think that I will remain a Peace Corps volunteer for now.
