EVEN WITH ZERO INTEREST IN ALBANIA YOU WILL LOVE THIS BOOK
Even if you have no interest in Albania, you will love this book. The short and funny stories will keep you laughing through- out no matter which country you come from. And do not let the sub-title fool you because although Mother Teresa and Skanderberg are mentioned, this book is about present day Albania from the eyes of a foreigner.
The choice of the narrator is A BIG SURPRISE and yet it fits. It tells of a people for whom generosity is way of life. Where in the world can a woman walk around at 2AM in a dark alley and feel safe? Tirana is such place. Of course, anything can happen but it is highly unlikely.
This book is not a travel guide because it goes many steps further. Even if you never set foot in Albania, you will experience it through this amazing book and wonder why you never visited this land.
