    Nice page! Albania really changes everyday, faster than any other country I know ! Fascinating! You should pay another visit to Albania ! I was amazed though I visited Shkoder in 2005 ! Your unidentified photo is in Berat fortress, St Theodoros church.

    I'm sure Albania is fascinating, especially with the lack of tourists. Those bunkers look like giant mushrooms!!

    I am staggered by the range of your travels Grete - I never would have picked Albania as place to go but your photos have changed my mind. leyle

    Great page! I would like to visit the country, but no one wants to go there with me. Such a shame, because Albania is not (for now)devastated by tourists.

    The picture you don't remember, it's a church inside Berat citadel, I have two pictures of that church in my Berat page, you can compare to be sure :) Nice page
