I was at the end of my week long exploration of Albania with the final stop being the near-border town of Shkodra. Before getting on the bus to Montenegro, I decided to have a last minute walk around to see what souvenirs I could grab. This woman stood out, waving some woollen socks at me in the hope of this foreigner buying them despite the language barriers. It all worked out for the best – I handed her a few hundred LEK, she gave me something for my godkids to wear, and when I asked her nicely she topped it off with this Albanian ‘smile’.
