    ... up above the city. From a vantage point we overlook the sea and a group of schoolkids approach us to ask us where we are from. When I say Australia, a couple speak English and tell me that all they want to do is leave Albania. They have no regard for their country which is sad. They are heading up to the old palace of King Zog, so we follow them.

    ... because there was another power cut. I drifted back to sleep and woke up again at a reasonable hour.

    We had a coffee in the hotel lobby and then started walking down to Rozafa's fortress, an imposing castle on the top of the hill on the way into town.

    ... the two don’t go together here because we could find plenty of places to get a coffee, a few pastry shops but none that did both. Finally we bought a pastry and made our own coffee.
