Last month we took a 1.5 hr bus trip to a neighboring town. We went to visit friends who have a work there. They are so hospitable and we enjoyed ourselves bunches. It was nice to get out of the city and see something different. We paid our 2-3oo lek each and found our seats. The buses fill up as they go along picking up more and more passengers...even if there are NOT enough seats! There is always room for more must be their motto:). It was an interesting day to people watch and to listen to language going on all around. On the way back to Tirana, the bus had a TV that was playing an Albanian comedy show of sorts. It was a hoot to listen and watch ---as the Albanians laughed at the antics and I was trying to understand the jokes. I think my laughing was a bit delayed!
It was another cultural experience for us and a good day with friends.
