One of the family!! WARM. FRIENDLY, CARING.... I arrived VERY early - no problem - the family welcomed me with smiles and made me comfortable while serving me a delicious breakfast while my room was prepared. MOM and DAD do not speak English but the children do. MOM arranged for a driver to take me to the various tourist sites in the area. Their daughter Resilda volunteered to be my tour guide since I do not speak Albanian. I tried to pay her, but she refused. So I took her to lunch. On the day of my departure, MOM sent Resilda with me to the bus station to make sure that I got on the correct bus. Resilda arranged for a cousin to pick me up at the bus station when I arrived that evening in Tirane. I also had to promise that I would call once I was safely in my hotel room that night. I do not know when I will return to Albania, but when I do, I will DEFINATELY head to Hotel Rixhi in Sarande.
