Fair Game

Last week in Albania I stumbled across a street fair sponsored by the US government.

There were a bunch of stalls, each displaying activities by a different department.

And an Albanian band doing covers of Adele songs

It was weird. Doesn't America has better things to do with its largesse than serve hotdogs? And doesn't Albania have bigger problems than recreational drug use?

Either way, if USAID wants to have any impact, it should probably try making some signs in Albanian.
