Mercedes a National Obsession
There are many things that overwhelm a pair of fresh eyes in Albania. The first thing is definitely the incredible geography, but the second thing has to be the national obsession with the Mercedes Benz. It seems that, as soon as communism crumbled, the whole country chose the Mercedes as the luxury item to reach for and today everyone seems to have one be it old, new, stolen or fake. It's the number one car of choice for Albania.
