Gëzuar Pashket! – Happy Easter
I was never a religious person but I’m in it for the experience!
On Easter in Albania, we lost an hour. Beside that, people go to church, of course! I decided to go for the experience and to learn some christian associated vocabularies. It was a 2 hour service. It started with singing, dancing, and then preaching.
My experience there was a nice one. It was positive and uplifting. I met many people and I’m mainly for the language learning.
After the service, we ate at a new Italian restaurant to celebrate a friend’s birthday with the new group of volunteers. It was a fun time.
Cutting to the chase….
