oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree

They said it couldn’t be done.  But they were wrong.  We found ourselves a real, live Christmas tree in Tirana!  We started off with a fake tree, just in case.  The theory being – better a fake tree than no tree at all.  But we were determined that it was just temporary.  We talked to our guy who sells us plants out of his truck.  He doesn’t speak any English, but somehow he understood exactly what we wanted and brought us this tree.  The price was spendy, but it’s still in the pot, so the plan is to keep it alive until next year.

Here are a few photos of our Christmas tree and a couple other things we’ve been enjoying.  Happy Christmas season!
