What’s TPOL’s favorite topic to complain about? Taxis! (see “Taxi my friend?” The Worst Places to Hail a Cab) Especially taxis from the airport. When I landed in Macedonia, my 100th country, I was greeted by the fake happy faces of those wanting to give me a good deal to Skopje, the capital city. Instead of taking their word for it, I asked the information desk how to get to the Marriott. The answer was take the bus. For $3.41, the bus took me from the airport to the main bus station. From there, I took a cheap taxi to the hotel. My only warning is not to buy snacks at the airport. A water and a double espresso cost $4.92.
