We went to a dark sand beach south of Durres. Finally, the kids could enjoy their big sand pit.
We had sunset beach dinner at a restaurant decorated with stuffed alligators, fish, sea shells: fish, home-made fries, herb bread. We all enjoyed the rhythmic music until millions of mosquitoes attacked us *aahhhh*
We opened the car door once to get in. Afterwards, we were busy killing mosquitoes to have a quiet night. To ensure that, we didn‘t even dare to go out to pee and we could only open the windows with mosquito nets. The result was a car sauna.
On our drive, we had seen tons of gas stations, quite many were abandoned. There were countless unfinished big house skeletons (only walls and stairs) *puzzling*
The restaurant owner explained to us in very good German that people thought, they could make money with a gas station, but then only the big ones survived. For the unfinished houses, private people just ran out of money.
