Face of Skopje
ts that time of the year, when everything is joyful and everybody is excited for the upcoming holidays, spending money on presents and Christmas decorations... at least according to the ads that are running on the TV.
Well, not for him and his wife. An older couple from a nearby village, spending every day at one of the green markets in Skopje. Both are educated with whom you can have an inspiring and interesting conversations. They are selling their goods to earn some extra money for the household. This way they can at least survive the winter months because their pensions are not enough even for the heating.
Business is not going well, and with the recent announcement of the government future looks even worse. A new legislation is going to forbid all employed people and retired people from selling their products on the markets. This is not yet enforced, but it will be at the beginning of 2019. So these people are not so excited about the New Year to come.
