Impressions of an American couple about Tirana
An American couple visited Tirana on April for the first time. It is impressive that they didn't know anything about our country before this visit. The questions they asked were so diverse from politics to history. “We didn’t expect Tirana so modern and full of life. We loved the painted buildings in Tirana; we loved seeing families in the parks. We didn’t know much about Albania, but Tirana just gave us a desire to visit this amazing country again and discover more", they said.

Kids in Tirana, campaign to protect the environment
Several activities were held in Tirana on World Earth Day. And we met a group of children from New York Basic Education in Tirana accompanied by their teacher who were on a mission: to spread messages to protect the environment. They stopped the people in the streets and give them politely leaflets with messages to protect the environments through replacing plastic bags with rope bags. Tirana is developed so much in the recent years and the Municipality has undertaken several initiatives, especially this year where they set a record of planting 100,000 trees in the city.

Night Mother! The famous American drama at Metropoli Theater
Night, Mother! The famous American drama, written by Marsha Norman, premier at Metropoli Theater, directed by well-known artist Ema Andrea. All the play is based on the excellent performance of two actors: Ilire Vinca Kosovar actress, and the young talented actress Egla Ceno. The drama is giving you a powerful emotion. It is a very tense dialogue between mother and daughter trying to find the reasons, why Xhesi wants to commit suicide, why she don’t like to live anymore, what is the real reason of that. A powerful lecture to live or not to live, and why the life is beautiful.
