Today my son was of from school so we headed for town. It was a nice mother-son bonding time. We walked I think through the whole Tirana. It was nice, sunny weather with a lot of people outside. The coffee places were over filled as always. Nobody in the world takes coffee time so seriously as the Albanians. They really value social time with friends/girlfriends/boyfriends here. Here are some pictures me and my son took today. Hope you have a wonderful Friday! And a big shout-out to my most wonderful sister-in-law Sahara for it is her birthday today!! 🙂 🙂
Happy B-day Sahara!!
..But I was wrong about that 😦
The Swedish dream sunset! I took these photos last time I was in Sweden during an afternoon walk. The dark tree silhouettes against the bright water and sky is just perfect. Besa
Wow, I must say every time a go out for a walk I tell myself that I need to do this more often, and somehow I never manage to do it. Silly I know, well I guess it`s been raining a lot lately that`s why I haven`t done it. Anyways, this morning I did go for a long walk, a lot of other people did too, young, old, males, females, overdressed old age men who actually wear some kind of suit and just taking a slow walk with their other old age friend, and talking politics. You`d be amazed how well older people dress here, most of them probably highly educated, and dress up to maintain that authority and display that personality of some higher character. I don`t even know if I`m expressing my self right but I`m sure you get what I mean. I just Looove the nature, my 1 hour walk felt more like 10 min, just because I was so caught up watching, listening, experiencing and embracing mother nature. Not one second of watching does it look the same, there is so much to enjoy, those trees, the lake and there was even this guy who had climbed up this very high tree, picking these yellow flowers growing on it. I have seen there are a lot of people selling them in town, but I`m not quite sure what they use them for, maybe to make tea or like some kind of herb. I managed to take a picture of that guy on the tree. I hope you can see him on one picture. The photos were taken with my cellphone so I had to edit them a little because of the lower quality camera. Here they are I hope you see what I`m talking about. Enjoy and please let me know if you have any opinion at all..xoxo Besa
The very peaceful lake!
Beautiful! This reminds me to stay grounded! 🙂
Here is the picture with the guy on the tree, can you see him??
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I saw these sheep, and this adorable baby lamb. They belong to some guy who takes them out everyday. 🙂
A flower had grown, in middle of February???
I was for a walk in the city today, just because I felt like I needed one. It was a little cloudy, and eventually it started raining a little. I never like to get wet in the rain, but this rain was just fine, it didn`t bother me at all.. I did some window shopping, and was trying to find something to buy for my husband for Valentine`s day, but I could not decide what to get him. I`ll have to keep looking. At one moment I spotted this man reading his paper, I was a little to far from him, so I had to zoom in with my camera to capture this nice picture of him. Later during the day I took my kids out to play, and on our way home we saw this cat climbing up on a tree, it was running away from this dog that was chasing it. I had my camera and took a couple of pictures of the cat-on-the-tree, the kids loved it.
I was out on a long walk this morning, it was just the perfect weather to be outdoor. It`s amazing how much there is to see out in the nature, there are so many different kinds of trees to look at and enjoy. After having had so much rain lately, which has kept me inside, the outside today felt so liberating. I took some photos that i thought you would enjoy, as much as I did. -B
