Concerts

There are quite a few concerts coming up in the next few days. There seem to be many more this summer than last. These three are the main ones for the next week.

Tomorrow, 30 June, at the Dinamo stadium Schiller is playing with Alban Skenderaj.

On 4 July there is a choice between Sean Paul at the Qemal Stafa stadium and Mustafa Sandal at the Dinamo stadium.

I had never heard of either of these people so for anyone who is as uninformed as I was before I checked google, Mustafa Sandal is big in Turkey, and Sean Paul is, according to his website, 'the worldwide ambassador of dancehall reggae.'

well, no clue who Mustafa Sandal is but trust me, we know Sean Paul, the Jamaican Jew who reinvented dancehall.
He probbably saw footage from G.W.Bush visit and decided to give a show. Ya mon!

Sean Paul in Albania - really a surprise!

I've seen him live at Vienna last summer at some free festival, you shouldn't miss it if you like reggae, hiphop and dancehall - great party. How much are the tickets, I'm thinking of going again?

Mustafa Sandal is some kind of Turkish turbofolk-in-disguise as far as I know, but i recon it can be a good fun, i dunno.

I don't listen to hip-hop or rnb. It gives me headache. I change the channel when those songs start, but i like Sean Paul. I don't understand what he says because he has some accent. I just think that the music has rhythm and it always makes me get up and dance. I put up the volume and start dancing even in the car when they play his songs on the radio.
I have heard Mastafa Sandal as a name but i don't know which are his songs now. Everyone will go to Sean Paul, Mustafa should change his concert date.

Yeah, I shoulda been there to thank Sean Paul in person, for all the girls that have shaken their booty against my tool while dancing to his shiat...

Guys I just met him and made a foto with him and also got an autograph. Now I will go to the concert. Mustafa Sandal is having his concert on the 24th I think.

It makes sense to rearrange the other concert. It's hard to see how he could compete. I've been listening to Sean Paul all night drifting on the wind across the city. I hope you all enjoyed it.

50 Ways to Make Some Money

The death of communism in Albania brought a flourishing market economy to life just as it did across Central Europe and Russia. On the streets of Tirana people are buying and selling, trading goods and services in predictable, or sometimes novel, ways. The shops are the most obvious expression of this. The streets are lined with little stores selling almost everything you could want. Freed from the choking grip of state bureaucracy Albanians are now at liberty to buy whatever they can afford. No matter how absurd the demand, someone will create the supply. Hence the preponderance of shoe stores in this city of muddy streets and torn up footpaths. Especially outlandish is the fashion for high heeled white boots - about as impractical a style of footware as could be imagined. Dotted across the city are the market stalls, sometimes just one person selling bananas, elsewhere a whole street lined with sellers of fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish and spices. Those who cannot bring thei…

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.





















Welcome

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.
