small Tirana road in the city

Tirana, bustling and busy, but as far as we could see as we walked about- not very fascinating initially- maybe it will get better. Maybe I am just not in a big city mood, probably not because what I don’t like about it is all the smog and congestion. Oh well, such is life… either way we are headed out today and headed to Elbasan, our final destination. I am flat out of money and I will have to scrap by till my funds come in from our ministry.

 

Zef has been great for us and we are totally of a kindred spirit and humor. Not only spiritually do we connect, but in our views and approaches to people and life. Great guy to be working with, but obviously to us he is very, very busy and we probably won’t be spending a lot of time with him. Elbasan is looming ahead for us and we couldn’t be more jacked. The trip from Tirana is about an hour and a half they say and very mountainous which should make for some good views and nice to just reflect and think. Me and cars or little drive, long drives it doesn’t matter- it’s a love affair, especially if I don’t have to drive.

 

We’ll see what Elbasan has for us. I hope its not like Tirana in appearance- more simple and not so bustling. That is what we here- but even Durres was only nice because of the sea view that made everything feel so open. I mean who am I to be picky- I signed up for this, but just stating a preference J.
