One of the perks of living in Albania is the amazing fresh fruits and veggies! I bought a 10kg watermelon earlier for a July 4th celebration and paid only 3 bucks. The nice shopkeeper offered to cut it in half for me and put it into two bags. He was worried it was too heavy for me to lug home. I insisted I could handle it. He then instructed me to hold/hug it like a baby so I wouldn't drop it:). Hope you all can find a sweet summer deal like this one! If not, Albania is on the 2013 list of places to visit by The Lonely Planet and Albanians are very hospitable.
