Met up with Ivan, he is from Serbia and is travelling with another Serb guy, Zoran. Zoran is recently married to an Albanian girl, Juliana. She lives just outside Durres. We spent the day doing the touristy thing around Durres, the plan was to get some beach time in but the weather wasn't good.
Spent the night at Juliana's parents house. Its in a village outside Durres...in the morning her father takes the pet cow for a walk.....
... A furgon came along a few minutes later. We boarded at 12:02 and it took 21 minutes to climb up to Kruja. Our furgon was pretty empty; just three old men aboard when Mom and I got on, and then a couple others hopped on further uphill. This ride cost us 100 leke (94 cents) each.

We shared icecream for dessert and couldn't believe that the flavours were boysenberry and another one that tasted exactly like Hokey Pokey!

Berat: Only about 2 hours from Sarande. It is a UNESCO listed town - very nice old town situated inland between a valley. They have a thing called 'giro' at night. Basically at 7 pm all the locals walk down the main street. The girls do themselves up something crazy like they are out on the town wearing some pretty revealing clothes and the guys sit in coffee shops and watch as they parade up and down the street. Sounds creepy ...
