Scenes around Bulqize

Scenes around Bulqize, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Bulqize is a mining town in the central northern region of Albania. The town is divided in two, split by some marshland over which this road is built. There are many apartment blocks built in both parts of the town, the ones in the southern part, under the dark mountainside are brightly coloured, the ones to the north. A dull muddy grey. We managed to make an elderly couple very happy by giving them a lift along the valley for about twenty kilometers and they invited us in for coffee, which we politely refused, a pity really as we never made it inside one of these blocks. Despite falling on seemingly hard times, the town had quite a happy air about it.worth stopping if ever going to Peshkopi.
