from park to parking lot





Walking around the streets of Tirana recently, my mother and I stumbled upon these statues. An Albanian friend told me that the Stalin once stood proudly in the park in front of the National Gallery. Now, these fine examples of socialist realism have been relegated to the parking lot behind the museum, all but forgotten.  I wish these statues could tell us what they've seen.
