Admiration for Albania …

It’s nigh on time I added another country to that big list over there on the right. And what a cracker it is, as tonight we feature the first statue from the mighty country that is Albania!

*does a little dance*

Huge thanks to workmate Andy for sending this one in…..taken earlier on this year whilst travelling around Tirana, the capital city of Albania. It is a monument dedicated to the people of the city who fought in the Second World War.

For those unaware, I am excited to feature a new country as the long (ish) term aim of this site is to feature a statue from every country in the world! This makes it country number 48 out of a total of 195, or a WHOPPING 25%. One whole quarter of the way to achieving this ridiculous challenge.....fine work everyone out there!
