Wasps and Cigareshites

Day 12: Tirana  – Shkodra 
Time: 4:32:08
Distance: 94.61 km
Average Speed: 20.8 km/h

Tirana is one of the best cities we passed through on this trip. There is a kebab shop there with a tree growing from the floor that goes through the roof. We went out with Dutch Sam to a great bar called Radio. He had cycled from New Zealand to Holland and Canada to Panama. On this trip he was backpacking. The almost 100km cycle to Shkodra was mostly on straight flat roads through industrial areas and into the wind. A forgettable day in the saddle. There is no hostel in Shkodra so we looked around for a few hotels. Outside one I got a wasp sting in my finger. We decided not to stay there. Shkodra is buzzing with people walking up and down the pedestrian streets. We've been told it is the bike capital of Albania.
