As the outskirts of Tirana faded, we began a gradual climb into the mountains. The scenery was breathtaking and the hairpin bends exciting. I asked Elton if we would see any of Hoxha's famous bunkers and he ...
... is a crumbling pile of highrise apartment buildings but I will say that bright paintjobs make the crumbling a little more eye catching. Some buildings had purple polkadots, others had multicolor stripes. A few even had floral patterns like found on some cheap IKEA pillow sham or drapes. At least Tirana knows how to decay with some style.
Tirana has no official bus stations so buses come and go from wherever and asking around is the only way ...
