Jadyn’s birthday was last week (March 31). Bless her little 4 year old heart …. it went by with only a hug and a “Happy Birthday” and we canceled her party. You see that was the day we brought Tyler home from the hospital.
So Friday we made up for lost time and took the children from her class to the Kolonot – Albania’s version of McDonalds but serving pizza. Did you know that Tirana is the only European capitol that does not have a McDonalds? There were 6 children, Tyler and Vera, their teacher and I. It was a great time.
But what does that have to do with a hatchback you ask? Well, it would not be a typcial day in Albania if I did not have a story to share. A friend brought us to the Kolonat in her vehicle (mine was having a few overheating problems) and dropped us off. When we were all finished, we were going to get a taxi. Vera went out to the road to find one but couldn’t so she ended up talking to a man standing on the corner and asking about getting a taxi. He spoke right up and volunteered. She came back and got us and this what he drove up in.
A must for living in Albania:
LEARN TO GO WITH THE FLOW!
EDIT: Sorry, I must note that the car we were in did NOT have four doors. More like this:
