Relatively short day also tiring. Lots of concentration needed on the road. The poor surface was one thing: the driving quite another: a free for all directions. Apart from the heavy lorry drivers to be fair who took care when passing.
Most of the scenery was working towns and farm land. Vlore was being regenerated before your eyes and it looked for the people that lived their, not the tourists.
Cheeky kids were abundant: curious and knew enough English to attract attention.
Berat is another proposition: a medieval town nestled in the valley of the river Osum. Awesome!
