kanun...

 
Complex codes of hospitality stretch from the Balkans to the sub-continent. In Albania it is called the kanun, 'the code'. It works both ways; the kanun provides codes of conduct for both Albaniahost and guest.

"Proud, mischievous, stubborn and zeshkan (brown, dark and swarthy)."

"In Albania family comes first. Always."

"Albanians by character are either kind or crazy."

" …a feeling of melancholy and uselessness in the face of history… lost between tradition and modernity, remembrance and hope, freedom and death." Albanian art critic, Edi Muka
