    When we visited Albania in 1988, it was with a group to see special plants and birds of Albania.

    In 2007, we spotted also some interesting plants. This one kept my eye while driving from Ksamili to Saranda. Unfortunately, till now, I have been unable to identify it. Anybody knows?

    On the way to Saranda, the landscape is magnificent. From time to time, the road overlooks the sea with occasional flocks of sheep and goats grazing. Lanes or narrow roads lead to the sea with tempting secluded beaches. For someone staying for a while in the area, there would be plenty to visit and explore within a short distance. We hope to come back for a more in depth visit.

    Favorite thing: Ksamil has several beaches. This one is a small one but it is almost in the city center (photo 1)

    A large house stands in the middle of the small bay (second photo)

    Another part of the bay seems ready to welcome visitors (photo 3) but early may is a bit to early! In the background the Ksamil islands.

    Photo 4 shows the two Ksamil island that are about one hundred meters away.

    Favorite thing: This is what happens to illegally built houses ! I have seen several of them and when a house has been built illegally, the authorities do not destroy it entirely but pull one or several pillars, which makes a significant part of the building to fall down. It is let as a warning or a reminder to others!

    Is that the house that I had shot in 2007 ? May be but I am not sure.

    Ksamili in 1988 2 more images

    Favorite thing: In 1988, not surprisingly, Ksamili gave a very different figure! On the first photo, small three levels building were the home for farmers that kept their horses around. Sorry, I meant, “that kept the community horses they were in charge around”!

    The second photo shows the Sea Eagle, an hotel and restaurant where we had a drink in 1988. VT Illumina identified it under that name as she lived there for a few weeks in 2002 when digging archeological sites in Butrint. I would have been pleased to see it in 2007 but, in what was now such a large town, that would have be too time consuming for our schedule and we had more exciting places to visit!

    The third photo shows the view on the islands.
