Photographer's Note

Travels on the Silk Road:
This is the post office of Kukës in Albania.Kukës lies on the road from Kosovo to Tirana/Albania, at the liqeni i Fierzës, a 70 km long dammed-up river reservoir. Tousands of fugitives from the conflict fled into poverty-stricken Albania (and Kukës) at the time but they have returned now. Today Kosovars come as tourists to Kukës, visiting relatives. The post office looks run-down but it provides some services; the omnipresent handy has taken over much of the communication.
