Gjakova III

Back from Kosovo now, it was an amazing time, both sobering and exhilarating.

Here's something I found one night on a piece of derelict ground behind the main street in Gjakova:

Coming across it was like something out of a Fellini film. Albanian music came from an old loudspeaker, and the kids riding the big swings would sling-shot each other out on terrifiying trajectories, flying almost parallel to the ground.
