You go girls...!

The city of Albania is in the process of planting trees along our street.  Yesterday as I was walking to ABC Health center I noticed many new piles of dirt on the sidewalks...and then  I came across a group of women that were responsible for digging the holes for the trees to be planted.  They agreed to allow this  photo. The gentleman standing there...he was giving them orders.  There was some laughter as I took the photo, it made me smile that these women...aren't really dressed for this kind of "labor"...but they are doing the work...! The Albanians are not afraid of hard work!

A little bit of Mexico in Tirana...

Look at the items on this actually says
Santa Fe...the sauce was good, but
Definitely not spicey.
Look at item number 8...don't know what that is.
We had a lot of fun and laughter just reading the
menu...the Santa Fe spring rolls were very good,
but of course could have used some "heat" in the

Our waiter, had the facial hair added with a marker,
and he spoke no Spanish. 

Suela, Lirak and the Mexican restaurant. The food was good,
and flavorful, but I need to go back and
teach the chef the definition of  "spicey " !

The weather was beautiful, we had a  table on the porch...
it was a  nice way to spend the afternoon with friends...!
