On August 5th, 2008 Pera Baity and I set out to explore the Balkans. We were riding antique Russian motorcycles; mine is a 50’s vintage M72 and Pera’s on a 1960’s Ural M61. The journey would take us over three thousand kilometers through five countries.
This is the second of three videos documenting the journey, and follows our travels through the Vlach villages of Greece. Picking up from part I in Giannitsa, we travel into the mountains to visit Livadia and Ano Grammatiko. From there we head south again, strolling through the historic quarter of Veria and then down to Argyropouli. After this we head east once more to Metsovo -where we see “historical tourism” at its peak- and finally circle back north to find a political rally in Samarina.

hey folks, if you like it share it- I’ve been working on this project for 3 years and we don’t have any kind of budget for a real screening. My only chance at an audience comes from you 🙂
