From Good friday to excellent Saturday
I am writting this on Saturday night and it seems like an age ago since we left our digs in
Dubrovnic this morning. We got up with thick heads and set off south, It was our intention
to visit Budva as it is noted in Wikipeadea to have more millionairs per square mile than
any where else in the plannet. I question wiki on this one, It was no better than barmouth
and we found litle evidence of wealth, However i am sure the guys at the fuel station were a
bit more flush after our visit,
We had a big fry up for breakfast on the side of the raod, Nice, then set off for Tirana
The albanians had been a bit sneaky, they didnt have a border crossing, just seemed to rely
on the montenegro crew to sort it out, we were in in around 30 mins, we had expected this
to be a difficult boder crossing but in the end it was OK. They did ask for car insurance
and registraton document and green card. All in order, We had done our homework. Having
been pulled by the cops twice already, we had everything to hand.
With in a few miles of the border it became claer that Albania had a lot more going for it
then Monenegro. The people were clearly more acustomed to dealing with poverty. Also the
feeling that the recent war in Montengro had left behind wwas now absent. I was glad,
montengro had a bad feeling about it. Glad to get out.
We both loved Albania, and made the following observation
Donkeys out number Women 7 to one in Albania
Stray dog outnumber Donkeys
It is illegal to go out with out a carrier bag full of stuff.
There is no driving test, only an idiot test, once you have proved you are indeed an idi0t
ot,then you are allowed behind the wheel. There no rules when driving other than try not to
hit other cars or people,
We did OK but came pretty close on a few occations The overtaking was a mixture of horror
Too tired now to write anything of qulity, finish this tomorrow.
