Summary
Albania was recently voted one of the top ten countries to visit, which is an incredible accomplishment, considering the country spent a good portion of the last century ruled by a communist dictator. Travel outside the country was not allowed and the outside world was painted as an enemy to the state. In spite of this, the rail system was built and promoted by the communist regime. Today, more than half of Albania's population is under the age of twenty and these young people crave contact with the outside world. On the train from Vlore to Shkodra, Albanian passengers invite the world to come and get to know them.
