Return to Valbona: 15 June

The schedule said there was a bus every 15 minutes to Gjakovë. When we arrived at the bus station at 8:30, we learned the next bus would be at 9:45. So much for schedules.

Our luck got better. Catherine in Valbona says that transport in Albania is chaotic and unpredictable, but it usually works. Without much effort, we arrived in Valbone before we had thought we would.

We returned to Valbona for several reasons. First, we have to retrieve stuff we left here. Second, this positions us to take the Lake Komen ferry to Shkoder. Third, this is a good place to wait out the rain which is pretty general the next few days–so much for June being a dry month. This morning, the plan was to leave tomorrow, but now it looks like we will leave Wednesday. We certainly didn’t expect to be pulling out warm clothes this late in the trip.

My only photos are a few I took in passing through Bajram Çurri:

The kitchen store


The plastics store

A market


Tomorrow, we will veg here. Rain is expected all day.
