KACANIK, Kosovo, June 14, 2010 – Beyond the outskirts of this city’s busy main street, smaller villages dot the mountainous terrain. Narrow roads wind cautiously up the sides of the tree-covered mountains to rural homes and villages, near the border with the former Yugoslavian republic of Macedonia.
