    This is Ilda. I am writing you to say a “live Hello”from an albanian medical student. I am a citizen of Tirana,Albania ,wich is one of the eldest place of Europe! God has been very generous with Albania, our nature is simply a miracle …for sure albanians are grateful people in general ,so being grateful to God we are the only nation in world who has a great connection between christians and muslims. But,we are also the only country in Europe ,that our neighbour countries are made from albanians too. Our History is bitter because the outside unfairness.But it has shown that albanians are good people that value their families, like eagles trying to survive and same time be corruption ,for others missed freedom has made them angry and sometimes naiv to be manipulated.Today 21January was not a good day.You make a snapshot,and this time trouble comes from inside ! that pictures shows some criminals that create fake (false) caos situation by hiting the police and burning cars. They didn’t have personal aims for that kind of nondemocratic agresion agains policemen that have been very calm in most of times ; Everyone here knows that the demostrators have been payed from some corrupted oposite politicians who wants to have the power again. I love taking pictures ,sometimes one picture tells more than 1000words … But I am asking to you,modern open mind world! Dont be so much ready to judge us ,we are trying. Young albanians are excellent ambitious students with high IQ ,comunicative and they usualy win in best Europian ,US universities competitions, like chinese 🙂 So please,don’t wait to make up a terrible face of Albania ,we don’t like this kind of politicians that create caos . We love working,studing and having visions for life,we love fashion, night life,picnics in fresh mountines air,we love laughs, we love life,we have dreams! SAY WELCOME TO THEM …as our Mother Theresa (born in Albania) teached us to be good people with the poor and people in need… If you judge people ,you don’t have time to love them!
