Visiting Albania, I started for he capital of Albania. Aproximately 600 000 people. It was more modern city than I expected visiting Albania. People with his typical costumes. There are big squares, many cars and shops. Visiting Albania I had the opportunitty to visit local markets. At that time local markets were busy.
About food visiting Albania I focused in street food as always. Many kebabs, Turkish style. It means with Fench frites inside the bread. They have a lot of pizza and pasta and places with italian food influence. I enjoyed eating street food like kebabs and sweet fruits.
Visiting Albania you can find many mosques. Most of the people in Albania are muslim. But in Tirana you can see people walking around wearing dress and some people wearing cover dress.
I just spent two days in Tirana. I was coming from Kosovo , Prizren. I think people look less outgoing than in Kosovo and in the Balkans in general. It´s true that most of the people can´t speak English in Albania. I was walking around street markets near city center and everything was very similar to Kosovo. An amazing thing!! Cars were driving inside the market. Pollution was very high in the capital. I found Albania good place for visiting. You can´t find many tourists there. From Tirana I went back to Kosovo and keep traveling around the Balkans.
At night , not many people walking around . Bars looked like very quiet , despite was Saturday night . I was walking around and trying local food . Prices were very cheap and really good quality .
I went back to Kosovo at night . In a minivan , on the way to Belgrade to continue my adventure.
