[hr]Not too far away from our apartment in Tirana is a major city round about. Last week we noticed a new addition to the landscape in the center of the round about. Someone in the van piped out, “It’s the American flag!”. Of course, the next day we walked back with our cameras to show everyone the new design. We find it so great that another country shows our country so much respect. Thank you, Albania.
Editors Note: The monument in the middle of the roundabout is in honor of Woodrow Wilson. After WWI several countries had their eyes on absorbing Albania into their territories. President Wilson spoke up for the autonomy of Albania and included them as their own nation state in the League of Nations (pre-cursor of the United Nations).
