Snow everywhere

This winter has come in in full force and the snow has appeared in the most unusual places.

Here are a couple of pictures from today's Corriere della Sera:

Can you believe snow in Rome?

And even in the heel of Italy?

When I heard the Italian meteo forecast yesterday for southern Italy, I knew that Albania would be hit next.

Sure enough this morning it was no surprise to see snow that is sticking to the ground in Tirana, although this is quite unusual for this city.

Nothing stops the street vendor who puts his ware on display on the little bridge, but the begging woman that shows up every morning in the same spot is nowhere to be seen today.

Current weather condition in Tirana will not last long, but, for a while even this city takes on a winter wonderland look.....
