Sweet Tirana

Tirana!

19th and 20th of October, Tirana and Elbasan

I enjoyed Albania. Just posting a few sloppy photos - I have many more but no time to post creatively. Albania is interesting and underrated. Visit - you will really enjoy.

(In Tirana stay at the Antigone Hotel)


John Belushi was Albanian - sweet Albania remember him...

Food is like Greece, but costs much cheaper.

Vasso shoots and posts on instagram.

Everywhere you go, people speak Greek, and many nice acquaintances are easily made.

Sukru Dursan from Turkey. I told him how much I like "Giaour Ismir".

I was very happy to meet Professor Jonathan Titus from SUNY, New York.
