EUROAMBASSADOR, FOUERE GOT THE BARREL
At yesterday's day of the fishmen, in which the people from the old part of the city of Ohrid, "Varos" are having their own news years dive at Saraiste, the ambassador of the European Union, Erwan Fouere got hold of the barrel filled with wine, which is trown into the lake.
The custom is that the wine will be consumed by the people attending this event, and the grabber of the barrel will have luck and health in his life. There were also many young people from Ohrid diving for the barrel, but the 62 year old Irishman, Fouere was the best.
This tradition is always the day after Ephiphany (Vodici). People call it the "Day of the fishermen" where they were swimming for luck, health and a better catch in the new season. But also a part of the old people from Ohrid say that on this day the cross (vodici) was thrown into the water secretly, in times the religion was forbidden.
MD: Congratulations! Mister Fouere is also one of the newest citizens of the old part of Ohrid, where he bought a place and built a house which is nearly finished.
