Colorful Tirana

I am a sucker for an elected offical who had a career in the arts, and after my brief trip to Albania I have become a huge fan of Edi Rama. Rama, Tirana's artist-mayor, has helped Tirana start to lay claim to the title of "Most Colorful City in the World". Now thanks to his "Return to Identity" program, people are starting to forget the grey, repressive left-overs of the former brutal old regime and starting to build parks, small gardens and paint some of the most colorful buildings you will ever see.
