We have finished up our time for now in Albania. It is always mixed emotions for us to pack up the suitcases for the return trip to Illinois. We were able to get most of the “to do list” completed. The trip home never gets any shorter. It was late Thursday (or better yet, early Friday morning) when we arrived in Green Valley. It was a big contrast from the balmy 65 degree temps we had in Tirana to the snow we came home to in Peoria. Right now, we will be going back towards the end of January. We have several guests coming and have some exciting things planned for January and February.
