Welcome!


This is my first blog on life in Shkoder, Albania.
I am from Scotland, but am now living in Shkoder.

Shkoder is a small town in the north of Albania close to the border with Montenegro.


The town is roughly 50% Roman catholic and 50% muslim.

This is a photo of a statue of Mother Teresa opposite the mosque on the main street.

Thanks,
The day I took this my battery gave up and I only got 2 shots. This was the better of the 2.

Interestingly, this statue should have been at the entrance of Shkoder and not the town centre. But the muslim community complained, and as a result someone decided that it should be here, almost directly opposite the mosque.

I'm not complaining, as to me it sums up the 2 cultures and communities in the one town, that is Shkoder.

Exactly.
