Not far from where we are staying in Durrës is a Mexican-style restaurant in a touristy part of town. In the US, we would avoid this type of place at all costs and head to a more authentic place… but here? Thousands of miles away from Mexico and the west coast of the US? All bets are off. Haha.
No, it wasn’t authentic. Not even close but it hit the spot. We all miss Mexican food so much.
5 entrees at this touristy spot cost us $21 USD plus another $10.50 for drinks all around. Not bad at all. We usually skip drinks because it’s crazy that they cost half as much as a meal. The promise of Mexican food made us break all kinds of our own rules. Haha.
While we travel abroad, we also have another rule called “Ice cream every day!” No explanation needed. A scoop here set us back 82 cents each.
The boardwalk close to the port is filled with carnival rides and vendors.
And also a decent amount of stray dogs. Actually, the whole country has a large stray dog population. No stray cats here like we saw all over Croatia and Montenegro.
Beaches this time of year are covered with seaweed and this special type called Neptune Balls.
At the far end of the boardwalk is a seating area that was perfect so some people watching and kid shenanigans.
Luka staring out into the Adriatic Sea once again.
A puppy dog longing to play with the kids.
You don’t have to ask twice. Hehe.
The kid’s eyes lit up when they saw bumper cars, especially Luka who was tall enough to finally ride on them. But there wasn’t a height chart anywhere so maybe any kid here is tall enough. Ha.
Thanks for following along,
