What about tirana?

sehir1

Well Tirana is not a super big city to travel. You may see everything in 3 days but I stayed there 3 weeks. So I experienced quite good about the city and the culture. Here are some facts you better know before you visit this interesting small city.

In Tirana you will see most of the places, shops and even the pharmacies are always open and available. You can find nice and stylish bars in the city and nice cocktails. The good part is they are quite cheap. I mean I didn’t even drink much beer because of the prices of cocktails. They are 3 times cheaper comparing to bars in Istanbul. As a Turkish person you may hear a lot of Turkish words in Albanian language. These similarities in language and food may be a good thing depending on your mood. There are a lot of fake brands in Albania since there is no Mc donald’s or KFC branch. Bad traffic is a famous thing here in Albania but I have seen worse situations. India, Vietnam and some others can race with Albania. The main problem in Albania is people don’t respect each other on the road. In 1995, drivers in the Albanian city of Shkodra refused to pay a new traffic-light tax on the grounds that their city had no traffic lights.I was also working for a traffic awareness campaign still in progress for the Albanian government. Another interesting information is Albania is the world’s first atheist country. All the churches and mosques are shut down during leadership of Enver hoca. He forced people to forget about religion and only worship and believe on him.Albania is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. It is tied at 113 out of 176 with Ethiopia, Guatemala, and Niger on the corruption index.For about 10 years (1968-1978) , Albanias only ally in the world was China. After China, Albania had no allies and was basically a more isolated European North Korea until 1991. To me Albania is a nice interesting country but need some more time and effort to fix some things up. Sometimes you see very basic things missing in daily life while you can find much more complex stuff as a standard in the city. It’s interesting they always ask you what kind of tea you want when you order a tea. Usually they don’t fill the glass to the top, coffee is more popular and tea is not for everybody. Usually they drink very small glasses of coffee like expresso and so on… It’s hard to find high quality souvenirs except the wine you see at right picture. It’s one of the greatest wines of all times and I had one for a good price. People are very warm and friendly. Actually without them I could be pretty bored in Tirana in 3 weeks since there is no much activity to do in winter time. It’s been a nice trip to Tirana, meeting with all these amazing people and working with them. Specially Marsel! Thanks for everything bro! See you in Istanbul soon.

Tirana 癟ok b羹y羹k bir ehir say覺lmaz. Muhtemelen burada 3 g羹n ge癟irseniz her bir yeri g繹rebilirsiniz. Bense burada tam 3 hafta yaad覺m. Haliyle ehri g羹zelce sindirmek i癟in fazlaca zaman覺m oldu. 襤te benden tespitler ya da baz覺 ilgin癟 bilgiler.

Tirana’da d羹kkanlar hatta eczaneler bile 癟ok ge癟 saatlere kadar a癟覺k kal覺yor. ehirde g羹zel barlar bulabilirsiniz. Benim favorim “Radio” adl覺 mekand覺r. Kokteyller 癟ok ucuzdur. T羹rkiye’de 15-20 tl vereceiniz i癟kilere burada 3-5 tl verip g繹n羹l rahatl覺覺yla sarho olmak 癟ok keyifli bir eydir. Arnavutca’da T羹rk癟e bir 癟ok kelime olmas覺 kiisel tercihinize g繹re iyi de gelebilir k繹t羹 de olabilir. Ev hasreti 癟eken bana yemekler ve dildeki baz覺 benzerlikler iyi gelmiti. Biraz daha evde hissetmenizi sal覺yor. Arnavutluk Mc donald’s ve KFC gibi Amerikan fast food zincirlerini bulamayaca覺n覺z 3 羹lkeden biri. Ho hepsinin 癟akmas覺 var ama kendileri hen羹z yok. Trafik buradaki en k繹t羹 olaylardan biri olarak g繹r羹l羹yor. A癟覺kcas覺 ben daha k繹t羹lerini g繹rd羹m. Vietnam ve Hindistan bu konuda Arnavutluu 癟ok daha normal b覺rakabilirler. Arnavutluktaki tek sorun biraz sayg覺s覺z ve aceleci s羹r羹 tarz覺 olabilir. Kemer takmaksa hak getire. Ben de h羹k羹met i癟in y羹r羹tt羹羹m羹z bir trafik bilgilendirme kampanyas覺 i癟in 癟al覺m覺t覺m ki hala s羹r羹yor. Bir baka ilgin癟 bilgiyse Arnavutluun Enver hoca’n覺n lider olduu komunist d繹nemde d羹nyan覺n ilk ve tek ateist 羹lkesi olmas覺. Enver hoca’n覺n dinleri yasaklay覺p kiliseleri ve camileri kapatmas覺ndaki as覺l nedense dinlere deil halk覺n sadece kendisine tapmas覺n覺 ve kay覺ts覺z arts覺z itaat etmelerini istemesiymi. Yolsuzluun en 羹st noktada olduu 羹lkelerden biri olan Arnavutluk’ta ilgin癟 olan bir dier eyse baz覺 basit eylerin hala ortal覺kta yokken 癟ok daha komplike eylerin standart olmas覺. Daha trafik levhalar覺 bile tam olmayan bir 羹lkede bisiklet yollar覺n覺n ve bisiklet kiralama istasyonlar覺n覺n gayet d羹zene oturmu olmas覺 beni hayli a覺rtm覺t覺 mesela. ay istenince nas覺l 癟ay diye sorulmas覺 ve basit bir 癟ay覺 istemenin uzun bir sohbete d繹n羹mesi ya da 癟ay覺n yar覺s覺 bo bir bardakta getirilmesi biraz sinir bozucu bir eydi ayr覺ca kahveyi k羹癟羹c羹k expressolar olarak i癟iyorlar. 2 saniyede bittii i癟in benim i癟in keyifsiz bir durum. 襤nsanlar genel olarak arkada canl覺s覺 ve iyiler. Zaten 繹yle olmasa 3 hafta burada delirebilirdim. Arnavutlua 繹zellikle yaz d繹nemi gitmek daha uygun olabilir. K覺覺n hem fazla souk hem de zaten az olan aktivite say覺s覺 iyice aa覺 d羹羹yor diyebilim.
