    Stalin-Park Tirana

    Well, I thought Stalin is gone for good, but I found out that it's not the case in peculiar Albania. Behind the Academy of Fine Hearts, ...oops sorry, Fine Arts, he still lingers around and enjoys his dictator-pension ship. And I have to say, I am quite glad about it: Because, where can you see the grumpy Georgian nowadays? I mean, the impressive Mustache-Man died 1953 and still everyone talks about him and even more so countries follow his policies. As the Russians took over his birth town Gori in Georgia very recently, they just probably wanted to put some flowers to his feet. Because Gori is the only other place where Stalin is still hot, besides Tirana.
