I invited a few of our neighbors over for a visit to enjoy our balcony before the cold weather set in.
We were able to chat, drink tea, chat, eat cookies, chat and get to know each other better. After they left (about an hour later, I felt as though I'd dumped all my Albanian language
out on the table and had nothing left!)
I am trying to not let the "fear of offending in the culture or making numerous language blunders"
keep me from spending time with me neighbors.
