Happy Birthday to me…

Celebrating one’s birthday each year during the summer time in south Albania is easy and fun. For something that may take hours of preparation, these last minute planned events can’t get any better with the back drop of mountains, hills, sea and fresh catch seafood. As we off-roaded through the back area of Butrint for about 20 mins, we settled along the beach in a thatched style little cafe for some shade and cold beer. We feasted on the famous “wild Qefull” fish..white, filets with very little bones grilled to perfection. These “brackish” waters is home to some of the most well known fish in the region. During the 15th-16th Century during the Venetians period… archives indiscate the fish was so desired that Ventians in Butrint transported it back to Venice for upper class delight. Along the beach you will still find signs of Roman period bricks for the once existing Monastary and baths that existed 2,000 years prior. But before we began our party celebration we kicked off celebration with a 2 min beach clean-up. This is one of the consequences as to being so closely related to the Coastline Agency in Albania with their second year in a row “action” of cleaning our beaches. mensclub24.ru
