'Hot' news

This week we are literally sizzling in NYC with temperatures reaching 100F (and feeling like 107F!), and we are not alone. Most of the United States, except for the Northwest corner of the country, are experiencing the same scorching heat. The electrical company's crews are out day and night practically all over this city trying to maintain and repair old transmission lines and avoid possible meltdowns.

Across the Atlantic ocean and the Mediterranean sea, Albania is enjoying less intense temperature, but the 'hot' news there is that tourism is dramatically increasing every year. I have read somewhere that during the first 4 months of 2011 one and a half million people have already visited the country! This does not cover the summer influx that sees many Albanians living abroad returning to see their families, and the European tourists, especially Kosovars, vacationing along Albania's great coastline and beaches.
