  1. Hi Earl, Albania is only as dangerous as anrhweye else in the world; I know because I was there! It is in fact the most interesting country. It is spectacular to look at as most of it is mountainous so everything you do has a backdrop of mountains. The food is absolutely delish the figs brought fresh from the village each morning are a taste sensation and there are three varieties I bought daily. Eat them with fresh yoghurt for breakfast to start another fantastic day anrhweye in the country. With dinner, fresh caught fish and salad overlooking the sea you will think you’re in heaven. Tirana is a fascinating city this amazing video shown at Tate Modern in 2003 on the subject of two of Albania’s most famous citizens Edi Rama ( artist & former Mayor/Tirana ) and Anri Sala artist & friend of Edi) then take your camera for a walk in Tirana. You have never come across anything like this on your travels! Then there’s the music. Be sure to listen to the most famous song, Ali Pasha and discover the story of the man himself.. It won’t be hard because Albanians love this song and you are never far from a version of it but the best is perhaps a live performance so if you can be there for MARATHONA You will be grabbed to dance as well so get ready! I hope these few suggestions are useful and have a wonderful time there. Faleminderit!
