Here is a clip of Rudi Vata playing for Celtic and scoring against Rangers. Rudi played in the Scottish Cup Final winning team beating Airdrie 1-0 in 1995, but he will always be remembered for scoring a goal in beating Rangers. Every Celtic player that has scored a goal in beating Rangers is well remembered by the Celtic fans. Original Video – More videos at TinyPic read more

Today I lost a friend, Dritan Prroj. He was shot at midday in one of the busiest areas in Shkoder. I was going to say he was shot doing nothing…but that would not be true. He was shot whilst preaching a belief from the bible of peace, love, tolerance and forgiveness and actively involved in helping the poor – he had been extremely busy helping families that suffered during the flooding in Shkoder earlier this year. The reason he was shot was due to a “blood feud”. His uncle had killed someone some years ago. He had taken no part in the killing, nor had he been in agreement with it. I wonder how Albania can seek to have visas to travel freely through Europe when they do little or nothing to stop these blood killings. Why would other countries want such people to come and visit or live in their land? ( I know not all Albanians have this mentality( thankfully) , but at the same time, the government do little to stop these killings) Surely NOW is the time read more

I picked up a couple of postcards when i visited the National Marubi Fototek in Shkoder.I love the old photos.One of is of the centre of Shkoder in 1932.It is interesting to see that the shops stretch across the road over to the mosque.I can make out a couple of the shops….One is called “Rruestore” – no idea what that means.One is called “Udhtimit te perditshem” – I would have liked to know where they went, but I can’t make that out.Kafe Drini – no surprise there then – a cafe in Shkoder!The other photo is of a family in Dukagjin in 1937.I really like this photo.It reminds me so much , and gave me a lot of help in visualizing life in the mountains, when reading the excellent book “Peaks of Shala” by Rose Wilder Lane.Notice there is no “chimney” in the house for the smoke to leave. I take it the roofs were thatched and the smoke eventually rises up and through the roof.I have a couple of questions though…1) What does the woman on the right have in her hand?2) What is hanging from read more

Shkodra po ndryshon! Well Shkoder is looking a little different. Not everything I like. I really think that the fountain isn’t that great. I am beginning to think the whole idea of moving the 5 heroes was so they could make the roundabout smaller, and give the big apartment room on the road opposite our house. i also think that in the centre of the town, within a mile radius of the centre, there should be no apartments higher than at the very most 6 floors!! You really want to keep the look of the centre of your town, much as they have done in the Piaca – which the local towns house should be very proud of! – they did a great job there.
