2. Today, both the departure and destination are away from the hostel. So I adjust to shorten the walking time.

3. Since there are no buses often, I have to carry my baggage by taxi and go to the new accommodation. I get down in the middle and walk through the section of the day, then take the bus again to the accommodation of Kriva Palanka where the laggage will wait for me.
Fortunately, taxi is cheap: 1,500 denards for 57km.

17. The new building under construction next to it.

Looking at this, I remembered the ondol heating method we’d been using for a long time.
The European fireplace and smoke cylinder system have a high heat loss.

18. Ondol is a traditional heating system that can sleep overnight with minimal firewood, and it is said that many people are hiringOndol system in the United States and Europe in these days.

I hope that in the climate crisis age, it will be widely shared with the global community.
Especially in the long winter zone.
I miss Ondol in these chill days.

They came to me with curiosity and I handed out the pamphlet to the students, and all go away in an instant.
The students who were waiting on the bus came to me.
