King Samoil, Icons and Saint Clement Ohridski

After the coffee break we had lectures by Guido van Beusekom (ECPM secretary) and Aleksander Ogorodnikov. We then had lunch. After lunch we went to see the old town of Ohrid and especially the citadel. This citadel helped the Macedonians to resist for example Ostro-Goth invasions. We visited five churches and a galery of antique icons. We walked to some pitoresque parts of the town to finally end up at the beach, where we had some drinks, before we went back to the hotel.

At the hotel we had some workshops, that were also given on Tuesday, before we went to dinner. After dinner the representatives of the member organisations gathered in the conference room for the congress. The annual (financial) report was adopted, slightly modified statutes were accepted and Auke Minnema and Denys Dhiver were elected into the board after I had been thanked for my services over the last four years. After this it was time to relax a bit on the terace and notice that the WiFi wasn't exactly working again. When it started working again, it was time to write a blog :-)
