On the right side of the river Bregalnica, bellow the hill at the settlement Novo Selo (Ново Село), there is a small hotel of the lowest possible category. It is actually a run down, partially falling apart spa that is а leftover from the days when Yugoslavia was one country and Marshal Tito was still alive.

When I look at history, or at the news, actually when I look at my own surrounding I think that the human kind is doomed from its own evil doing. Yet, there are those individuals that amaze me with their goodness that I think that people are, deep down, good. And this day was the first of many where I experienced the goodness of people. Goodness that, perhaps, was all due to the fact that I was riding a bicycle. In any case, I think that these people, on this journey, restored my fate in the human kind, and made me overlook all the bad things that are happening constantly throughout the world.
