i recently went to albania for a friend’s wedding celebration. landing in tirana, we drove to yar beach along the yoni sea in southern albania, just south of the town of vuno. there we had a delicious time soaking up the sun on the stony beaches and eating fresh tambuli at a picnic in the olive groves. we then drove from yar beach to montenegro, where we caught the train to belgrade, serbia. here are some pictures of the beautiful and alluring albania.

Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea, has a population of just over 400,000 people.
