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.

Whimper

And now the end is near
and so i face nanananana...

Never did like that crappy song.

But it's true nevertheless.

Tomorrow in the wee hours of the morning we will be heading for the airport for the last time. I suppose it was too much to expect that I could have kept this going while getting ready to leave. So apologies for the lack of postings over the last weeks. This is post number 380 something so I suppose one post every two days is not a bad average.

There were probably 380 more in my head or scribbled down on scraps of paper, but many of them are perhaps best left there.

I suppose I should be penning - or typing - my final thoughts and reflections on two years in Tirana, but right now I don't have any. Maybe in a month or two though I might come back with something.

Thanks to all of you who have read this blog - especially those of you who have become regulars. Thanks also for linking and thanks to all who left comments.

As for the other stars of the blog, Bella now has her own …

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.

Miss Globe 2007

On Saturday, we were at the Rogner meeting with an expat friend who was leaving Tirana. It was breakfast time, and as our friend was finishing his tea the breakfast room started to fill up with over-dressed (or under-dressed) young women wearing blue sashes. These were the contestants for the Miss Globe 2007 beauty pageant being held in Tirana tonight at the Palace of Congresses. High heel boots and mini-skirts - or in a couple of cases micro-skirts, or possibly just belts - have never struck me as obvious breakfast attire, but the girls seemed happy enough tottering and wobbling around with their tea and toast. I'm not sure why they were wearing their sashes - perhaps in case they forgot which country they came from.
As we were leaving they were boarding a large coach which I had seen a number of times around the city in the last few days for their next trip. I'm not sure how some of them made it up the steps, or how they managed to sit down, but perhaps these are the kinds o…
