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 the border it was only a short cycle through Struga to Ohrid, here we celebrated Martin's birthday and we did some sightseeing. The weather was the best it has been in days and Ohrid is nice and relaxed.
