    Girls working in the fields (at rest!)

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One guy of our group had approached a group of girls working in the fields, that had gathered and stopped working to look at these strange human beings, visitors from abroad! He had made a Polaroid photo of them that the one on the left looks at with astonishment.

    Fishing in the wetlands

    by JLBG Written Feb 25, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The fisherman shown on the first picture uses a kalimerre. This kind of fishing is used from Ulcinj, in the south of Montenegro to Saranda, in the south of Albania.

    Though the name of this device sounds almost like the Greek salute ''kalimera'' (kali = good, kalimera = good day and/or good luck, it has nothing to do with Greek. It comes from the Albanian '' në kalim merre", to take (the fish) when it passes.

    The device is made with a square net that is dropped into the river. When the fisherman feels that a school of fish is swimming over the net, it draw it up as fast as possible in order to imprison the fishes.

    In front of Count Ciano hunting lodge, our guides have posed for a photo. First from the right, our French courier, an ornithologist. Second, Agron, our Albanian guide, a teacher of French that occasionally worked as a guide for the very few French visiting the country. Third, our guide in second, a forestry engineer that knew where to go to see the birds and plants we were looking after. Last on the left is, I feel, the responsible for the lodge.
