Macedonia in a nutshell

I walked around old town today with a couple guys from my hostel. We stopped in the Museum of Contemporary Art, which was atop a hill behind a castle. The building looked unkempt and uninviting from the outside, but inside was clean modernity. After wandering past the art, I spotted a bathroom, and decided to make use (bathrooms are not so ubiquitous in Europe as elsewhere). The bathroom was tidy as well, with all the modern western amenities installed (toilet paper & paper towel holders, toilets), but all completely empty and missing toilet seats. They'd built the infrastructure but couldn't maintain the finances to keep it up.
