Esma and Xhemal in Shkodra, Albania.

I was hitchhiking for one month in the Balkans in Mai 2013. I met Esma and Xhemal in Albania, they picked me up at the Montenegrin border and drove me to Shkodra. There, they pretexted to be willing to offer me a coffee to bring me to a restaurant: they offered me a full albanian meal instead. Esma and Xhemal have two sons, one was studying in Tirana, the other one lived in Istanbul, Turkey.
