This is a museum built in an underground bunker

Painted to brighten the country

Look carefully around the traffic lights the poles are red or orange...

Dear all,

Well still in catch up mode. On Monday, 30th we moved on from Macedona crossing into Albania, the

poorest and slowest country to recover. The land is still dotted with the underground bunkers. In Tirana they have dug out around one and found several rooms on two or three levels that the have now turned into a museum.

The new or renovated buildings in the city and peoples homes are often painted with bright colours in contrast with the drab cement buildings and apartment buildings left over from the communist rule. The hotels we are staying in are four star ranging from Hiltons to old majestic buildings converted from the past. The story of the people reminds us of what a great life we have in Australia.

We have met another Christian couple on the trip and enjoy a few words of encouragement with them each day.

Next blog on its way.

Kind regards,

Dianne and Paul
