Albanian Holiday weekend

At the end of this long holiday weekend in Albania, due to the annual Mother Teresa Day celebrated on Friday, October 19th, Tirana has added a marathon on Sunday morning. 

It is the first time of such an event in Albania with more than 3000 participants from all over the world greeted by the Tirana’s Mayor, the Prime Minister, and the Minister of Tourism and it befits the country’s centenary celebrations of its independence. 

The Mayor’s online site has posted many, many pictures of the event, but I am borrowing a couple of them to share here with my friends, who are not on Facebook. 

 I also was able to snap a couple of shots from my balcony, but only caught the tail end of the run.
