ALBANIA

September 25, 2009

AlbaniaAlbania is called Land of the Eagles. Wikipedia has an interesting Tale of the Eagle story about Albania.  Its deep red flag sports a two-headed eagle representing north and south Albania.  I found out very quickly that I like the melodic folk music of southern Albania.  You can hear samples from the album Albanian Village Music 1930 on this page at Amazon.com.  The ’30s were a tough time for Albanians with Mussolini simply deciding to annex the country and forcing the people into an era of Italianization.  Makes me think about Nick Lowe’s poignant words, “What’s so funny ’bout peace, love, and understanding?”

Which is why I Cook the World.  Every taste connects us.
