Lost in Albania

After a horrible night spent in the back of a land rover defender camping in town-centre Durres, we decided to move up the coast to Shkoder. An hour of atrocious Albanian driving brought us to the middle of nowhere, where the road forked. Stupidly, I asked a passing Albanian tramp for directions. He smiled at me, and said right. Presumably the only english word he knew was right, as it was the wrong way. This is the only reason why we went to Burrel. Sheer bad luck.

Pros and Cons

    I think u r exaggerating with ur tips. Maybe u had bad experiences and the road u took to Burrel isn't the normal one. But what i cant (under-)stand is what u write about the local customs. I dont know if i have to anger or to laugh. i better laugh!
