Yesterday, Monday, we went to Elbasan for the Dita e Verës (day of summer) celebration. The trip from Tirana to Elbasan is about an hour and a half drive up and through the mountains.
There were a TON of people there. The main boulevard, which is about a kilometer long, was packed with people. We just stood in the middle and absorbed it all. Eventually, people just came up and talked to us. It was fun having conversations with many different people.
