In the Durres bus station, beside the train station, I took a bus to Tirana for 130 LEK( 1 euro= 138LEK). A girl beside me was checking her e-mail on mobile. I asked her if I could also have connection on my mobile, but she hardly explained that I needed an Albanian telephone number, so I didn't ask anything more.  We arrived in the capital an hour later and I walked to the Square Sheshi Skenderbej, visited the National Museum, the Opera House and The Clock Tower with the Ethembej Mosque. Through a pedestrian street  I passed beside the Tirana Castle walls towards the Tanner's  Bridge, and across a park I came back to the main square.

Although the language was a barrier, Albanians are all very kind and will try to do everything to help you, no matter if they are also in a hurry. In Albanian there are a many Italian loanwords for example: pishina, gelateria, pasticeri, pelukeri, kuafor like in Turkey, and also Turkish words like zgara, bashkenti, sheqer, byrek, qufte.
