leskovik

Yes, we woke up in a #mosque today in #Leskovik and yes we slept in the same room though not married (and not planning to, for those who care). Someone told me before that the way people practice (Sunni) #Islam in #Albania is a bit different than in other countries because of #communism and other reasons. We all shook hands, too, and though not encouraged to cover up I did anyway because I think it’s the respectful thing to do. Did you know that mosques almost always have extra rooms (usually gender-separated) for those in need of a place to stay? I’d not recommend anyone to overuse this kind of #hospitality, as we were planning to go #camping until the rain washed everything away, but keep it in mind as an option if you have nowhere to go and you’re not judgmental of other’s beliefs. Now we are in #Përmet relaxing a bit before deciding what’s gonna happen tonight!
