In the wake of the election I’m switching gears and preparing to show my family around Albania. On Monday my mom, dad and sister will arrive at Rinas airport. After a year apart, the 4 Hammetts will all be road tripping together….something that hasn’t happened in quite a while.
I’m excited to show them my home, and my friends and “family” here are excited to meet my actual folks. This is a culture centered on family ties, so the fact that my family hasn’t been all together in over a year is baffling to most Albanians.
We’ve got some adventures planned and will be traveling together to Germany for a few days after spending time here in Albania. I’ll be offline for a while, but I’m sure there will be plenty to tell when I return!
