The war in the late nineties is still very apparent with many broken down houses and interesting enough, very few lights radiating from peoples houses i.e. lack of electrical services especially in the rural areas. People were hell of a friendly especially the taxi driver who drove ahead of us to lead us to Hotel Denis in Pristina after arriving at 5-6pm. The roads in Kosovo were treacherous especially at night. Nicky was driving from Pec to Pristina but with the light fading and so was the road, she had to stop and let me take over as she couldn’t see the road never mind the pedestrians walking on the muddy edge of the road in the dark! Sib was shouting from his walky talky to slow down so he could follow our lights as he couldn’t see either!

Broke another rule, never arrive in a city at night!

The country reminds me of a Africa country in Europe, but with some good tale tale signs of European recovery.
