... in Albania. A bus that has probably been on its last legs for many years, yet somehow still finds a way up those hills and round the bends. The only 2 differences from Albania?

We arrived safely in Trakai and began walking towards the centre, passing many nice log ...

It was marked on the map as something to check out, but while there was no obvious threat, I didn't feel good on that street. I can't identify what it was specifically, but something on didn't feel right, so I made hasty progress along to the houses ...
