High into the mountains we go!

This weekend was the start of the real heat. Soaring into the 30's, we decided it was time to get out of the city and head into the mountains.

I feel very far from friends and family when I'm up here in Shkodera, but my sanity was tested as we headed further into the mountains. It was about to get even more remote.
I honestly don't know how the villagers cope so far from city life!

We took a break and swam in the river that ran along side the road. We met two young guys who fearlessly dived into the shallow river from high rocks.

Then to finish the day off, we came back down to the heat and ate cherries and dipped our feet in Olivers paddling pool.

Heading into the cool!!!

Is there anyone out there?

Clean, cold! water.

Jamie cooling off!

Yummy cherries!

Then that night a little friend moved in to help out with the mosquito problems...

Have a wonderful summer everyone!!!
