It's Really Spring!

Picture 023

One of my personal favourite photos from a trip to Sri Lanka ~ Kim H, 2003

It's a wonderful spring day here in Tirana!

The birds are singing, the sun is warm and bright, and the neighbourhood children are out in t-shirts and sandals. It's rejuvenating!

Beside our house is the local pizza house run by a lovely Albanian couple. We live quite close to an international school and so there are quite a few foreigners living around us. And so the pizza place gets a lot of business from all of us. The pizzas are good (and so inexpensive!!), and the woman who runs it speaks really good English. She's friendly and open and has made friends with most of us. She's ready to give birth to her 3rd child and so all the foreign ladies decided to surprise her with a traditional North American Baby Shower today. It was great fun to introduce her to party games and presents! I look forward to meeting her new bundle of joy when I get back from Canada at the end of the month :)
