Flag of Albania  ,
Friday, March 30, 2007

We have finally made our way from the capital to some sun and beaches...
What can I say about Saranda?  Quite a touristy place and I suppose a bit more welcoming as they are used to dealing with we odd foreigners...particularly since the boat from Corfu is cheap and takes a mere hour...
We didn't spend much time here but I think Saranda is a vision of what a touristy Albania will look like in a few years...
Unfortunately getting there can be a bit tedious as buses and minibuses don't really run in the evenings (a fear left over from Hoxha's time) so after 7 or 8 one must take a cab and dig into the budget a bit...
All in all we were excited to go veg out in Corfu so we made our way early the next morning to Corfu
NB There is an immense archaelogical site near to Saranda called Butrint, as well as a beautiful aquatic area, but I suppose that we will save it for the next time in Albania (and there will definitely be a next time!)
