February 19 – Lushnjë
The first of three stops on my way to Saranda. Cycling out of Durres was not good – basically along a motorway for ages. Stopping for a snack a couple of times I arrived in Lushnje in good time to find a cheap hotel and had a quick look around the town centre. As usual, it was a mixture of old and new with the centre being mainly westernised. There was a large group of middle-aged men playing dominoes in the park, as there was in Durres.
