You'll notice I had managed to say nothing for quite a time ...

Very naughty, as usual, Wo. One might be entertained or you might be "down right rude and verging on the offensive." Hmm.

Choose entertainment.

Life is too short and doesn't treat us seriously. Always best to choose the bright side.

"Life is too short..."

The older I get the clearer it becomes. I choose entertained, of course.

At least y'all were only "verging" on it, not actually "offensive"!

When one provides a link that has exactly the information requested, and the OP apparently ignores it, said OP should not be surprised if further responses might be a little testy.

In answer to Dukey...

In Albania they only have running water for 10 hours a day. This means drinking water can be sitting in tanks for several hours before being drunk. The advice to foreigners is to drink bottled water.

For anyone who is interested, price of meals in good restaurants for March 2017:
Soups 250-350 Lek
Salads 350- 450 Lek
Main course Pasta/rice dishes 500-800 Lek
Main course meat dishes 1000-1200+ Lek
Beer or wine was 200-300 Lek
Bottled water 70-150 Lek

The exchange rate was about 150 Lek to £1.
