Tomorrow is Thanksgiving...there will not be a turkey on our table...but chicken.  Remember, that Thanksgiving is not a holiday here...but the American missionaries get together, and some Albanians join us for the food.

Turkey is very expensive here, and not easy to find until the first part of December. Fresh turkeys can be found in the markets...as in this picture, sitting...waiting for someone to buy them.  These turkeys are purchased around the first part of December...taken home and fattened up for New Year's dinner.

The price...1400lek per kilo.  Ok... so here is the conversion:

  • a kilo is 2.2#
  • 1400lek is about $13.58 USD
  • so...about $6.30 a pound. 
  • these fresh birds are about 5-7 kilos
  • one fresh turkey>>>$69.30-$97

Chicken it is....

Have a blessed Thanksgiving.  

“I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving,  And will call upon the name of the Lord.” Psalm 116:17
