Hi. I've checked the feed. The link on my blog takes me to feedburner and this is up to date.

I also subscribed to it myself using google reader - again it worked fine and is up to date.

Have you tried resubscribing? Or using a different reader? I'm afraid I don't know much about the technical stuff, but it is working.

Anyone else out there having problems?

Yeah, tried resubscribing and even going back to your old feed. It must be my aggregator because it seems to work google reader.

Welcome to Our Man in Tirana. I moved to Tirana, capital of Albania, in October 2005 and left in October 2007. This blog is a mix of photographs, reports, links, impressions and, undoubtedly, prejudices relating to the city and the country.

Since I am no longer in Tirana I am no longer updating this blog. However, there are over 300 posts covering this two year period and I hope that they are still of some interest.

So if you are curious about Albania or if you are planning to visit I hope this blog will be of value.

Petrela Castle

This is Petrela Castle near Tirana. The site has been fortified since the 4th century, but the oldest surviving parts are from the 13th century. Today the castle is a restaurant where you can enjoy lunch while taking in the views.
