5. I ask the driver to stop at the front of the hotel, but it is not a bus stop. He is kind to me.
I check in the hotel for the day
I am going to the village of Ag.Petros, yesterday’s destination and today’s departure. But it is a tough way to go.

6. Anyway I walk 2 km to the town of Polykastro.
The photo shows the elementary school playground on the way.
The bus going to Ag. Petros is not coming for a long time. The available information is not clear.
Already it is 11 O’clock in the morning. Then I find a taxi and ask the fare to Ag. Petros . It is 25 euros for 20km riding. , i.e. over 30,000 won in Korean money. It is 20km distance. I take the taxi.
But when I take a taxi, the driver says that foreigner should get a permission from the police. After 2 minutes driving, we arrrived at the police station. Policeman looked over my passport. There was no problem. Finally I arrived at the village Ag, Petros at 11:30.

10. While I’m walking about here, a patrol car interrupts me. The call that a suspicious man took pictures came in to the police station.
Perhaps the border is always under strong tension.

20. I walk for a long time. When I turn around, I see a scene of a sunny road. When I see a wonderful scene on a straight road, I remember my walking in India about a year ago.

27. Polykastro begins to be seen.
It is an international city with a population of about 10,000 but mixed with people from various countries in the border area.
People here claim that this area should be called Macedonia.
But the Macedonian country is called the Scope

The dispute over their nationality and borders reached a serious situation 25 years ago, but fortunately it was resolved without armed conflict.

34. The vegetable salad I ordered for dinner. It looks fresh and delicious.

On the other hand, the extra energy needed to grow these vegetables in winter.
What would happen if everyone in the world wanted to enjoy this benefit?
It is not sustainable. It is hard to see this as a standard.

So what’s the alternative?
Is there any way to eat fresh vegetables in winter?
Yes, it’s in Korea.
