My bus to Montenegro takes the long way and we loop through Albania on the way. This is my first taste of Albania and it is really impressive.

I just kept thinking about the 6 year old thinking it was inevitable that we were going to topple over int the freezing water but miraculously we got out of it and from then on every time the guide said to row, we rowed.
