Buz gave us asphalt again and from here we cycled down to Tepelene and up to Permet through the Vjosa valley, before taking the exit to Leskovik we took another gravel side road with nice views of the river. Then the road went up and up to Leskovik after which we stayed at Farma Sotira.
We cycled from the top of some mountains over a plateau towards Korce, which is quite a modern Albanian city with an nice feeling. We then stayed in Maliq and passed Pogradec on the way to the Macedonian border. Pogradec did not have a nice feeling and the road from Pogradec was dreadful with road works.
From Ohrid we cycled over the pass to lake Prespa and from there over old roads to Bitola, which felt as a relaxed city. We also visited a quiet Roman historic city. From there we crossed over to Greece.
