    And now a few birds!

    Pink flamingo
    2 more images

    There are not only mammals but also some typical birds.

    In front of the bar, a pink flamingo is walking in the middle of a small pond, holding a mussel (first photo).
    On top of an amphora shaped column, a prey bird stands, wings wide open on a branch sticking out of the amphora (second photo).

    And in another place, another prey bird seams to fly (third photo).

    There were other animals, but I felt that was enough and did not take a photo of each of them.
    BTW, I do not remember that there was any bear or wolf! They should have been there as they are found in Albania! May be next time!

    This place is worth a visit and everybody driving between Tirana and Lezha should have a look with a drink and why not with a meal. I would not be surprised if that were in the future a hotel, once it will be finished building.
    We were really amazed by this place. It must have cost a lot to build it. How many very special workers have done this job? It is not simply mere building, they had to collect the stones and shingles, select them for their color and shape and finally arrange them in the required design…

    Wild animals everywhere!

    When coming into the bar, you are dazzled by the outside sun and as the inside is rather dark, you do not see the details and only see the hanging walls. Once accustomed to the shade, you will discover that there is another dream made true. On the concrete hardened draperies; dozens of stuffed animals were looking at you! They are everywhere, gazing at you in the dark!

    The first photo shows an otter holding an eel.

    The second photo shows a fox

    The third shows a badger eating an ear of corn.

    Sober toilets, Turkish style!

    Sober toilets, Turkish style!

    In such an environment, one might expect that the toilet would be in some strange style too but amazingly, they were in a very sober style. For those who do not know what is known as toilets Turkish style, here is one example.

    A cave, another dream made stone!

    A cave, another dream!
    1 more image

    The inside looked even more like a dream but like another kind of dream. First of all, the ceiling … there was no ceiling but the top of the huge room was topped by a soft looking matter that made drops like a torn shred of cloth! Or like a ceiling made of white chocolate that would begin to melt! The whole thing was sustained by column in the shape of amphorae, decorated with stones and shingles like outside.

    After a beer, it is often wise to have a visit to the toilets. The entrance into the building is almost in the same style. Only the basement is finished, the first level remained to be built with iron bars sticking out of the concrete.
    On top of the entrance, a huge eagle was stuffed with its wings wide open (second photo). How amazing!

    Tables on the terrace

    Tables on the terrace
    1 more image

    On each side of the alleys, perpendicular walls, a bit lower, draw wide squares with a table in the middle. Space is not a problem and in this bar, you will not be bothered by your neighbors talking: the next neighbor sits more than 10 meters away! That was an excellent choice to have a beer in this place!

    Border of the alleys

    Wherever direction you looked to, there was a lace of stones, drawing figures on the soil, figures in the air as in a dream. Actually, the whole place looked like the dream of a child playing on the beach with sands and stones, but a man’s size dream, made strong by concrete reinforcement.

    Stone show!?

    At several places, a special décor had been built. A triangular arch was standing with a kind of shelf in the middle. It was used to display stones with interesting colors and shapes. There were half a dozen of these displays.

    Shingles and stones fountain

    At one end, a shingle and stone fountain was standing with water flowing gently from the top. Here again, you must enlarge the photo to get a full view of this amazing fountain. We later found that at the other end, there was another fountain that was a bit different and not completely finished.

    Amazing terrace !

    Once we had walked into the terrace, the sight was even more amazing. An alley ran in front of the house for almost 50 meters. The alley was paved with stones of various colors. It was framed on both sides by another set of arches made of stones and shingles. You must enlarge the photos to see exactly how it looked!

    On the road between Fusha-Kruja and Lezha

    Out of any village, between Fusha-Kruja and Lezha, somewhere around Bushnesh, we were amazed to spot along the road the huge parking lot for a bar with an amazing wall in front, with arches and columns made of stones and shingles of various colors. We were thirsty and that was amazing enough to be worth a closer look.
