    Don't bother taking US dollars. Take lots of euros instead - many restaurants, shops, hotels (and the airport bus) like to be paid in euros! Changing to lek is easy in Tirana with many Money Exchange booths.

    The standard of food on the whole trip was 5. Not only was there plenty of it but it was all extremely fresh and the yoghurt and cheese was locally made.
