Tirana to Dürres, Albania

It was raining hard in Tirana when we woke up this morning. We had good internet at the Mondial Hotel where we stayed in Tirana so I worked on our YouTube video about our visit to the Water Buffalo Dairy in Italy and posted it before we left.

Around noon we walked about a mile to the rental car place to pick up our car.

We drove back to the hotel, picked up our luggage and drove west to the town of Durrës on the coast. We had drinks and a pinsa on the sidewalk outside our hotel.

After our snack we went for a walk. According to Wikipedia Albania is 59% Islamic. As we were out walking we passed the local mosque during the call to prayer. It is interesting that we have only seen a few women wearing hijabs but we have seen very little alcohol consumption among the people we assume are locals.

We went to the TripAdvisor top rated local restaurant for dinner, a beef restaurant, Westwood Meathouse. We had a wonderful dinner

On the walk back to our hotel we passed the mosque all lit up.

  1. Beautiful fall flowers! Is a pineapple like a pizza? What is the bread topped with? Water buffalo milk or cheese or both?😃
