Home

So, I signed up for a free online course “developing your eye”. It’s a photography course available on WordPress platform. The first assignment was “home” themed. The beauty of it is that it’s unconventional, not necessarily a home… home is where your heart is, right? So I let my imagination do the thing, which enabled a new perspective and my lens captured things I related to home… not some mere building or a room… not fancy but pieces of the reality I live in… this bar for example where I come lots of times for a cup of coffee and raki ?.

Shopping at Fishop

Fishop is a fish restaurant in Tirana, one of the moment’s hot spots, so that’s where I could be found yesterday at this time.

The place is very cozy and welcoming, not some ridiculous fancy restaurant, where a certain dress code is mandatory. Nope, it was very sweet with a cute, simple furnishing, a bit dark as a matter of fact, but still nice. It’s pretty clear that the guys who run the place want to stand out by making “Fishop” a real brand. I think they are succeeding, because it’s becoming huge in popularity. Well done guys! Thumbs UP.

Due to the raising popularity, in case you want to go, you will necessarily need to book before hand. On Sundays they are open till 7 pm. If you think that going during some kind of happy hours you will be lucky enough to find some free table, you are dead wrong. We had booked the day before for a table, at 4 pm, which is not exactly your usual time of having lunch right? Yet, when we got there, it was full. No exaggeration, it was FULL.

This national TV show was another advertisement to your demagogic and filthy propaganda.

Casual Friday

There is this part of Tirana (Albania’s capital), we call it “Bllok” in Albanian as the abbreviation of “zona e ish-bllokut” translated “Ex-block zone” . Once this was, where the only thing you could see were nice little mansions, little villas to be precise. The residents you might be asking? Only a selected bunch of people, the previous communist regime leaders, the high society.

That space of the capital was guarded 24/7 non stop. Trespassing was not an option if you cared for your life of course, or the so-called freedom you were allowed at the time.
