Photographer's Note

As I was approaching the city of Pogradec, I saw some people along the road selling hazelnuts. While some were busy picking the nuts, others were cracking them before putting them in small plastic bags. I decided to stop by and see this friendly Albanian who was hard at work in his makeshift shack. Above him, standing near a small waterfall, his few goats were leisurely grazing. I bought him two bags of his precious crop, yet I didnt succeeded in haggling over the price (I noticed that Albanians are very tough businessmen !).

En arrivant sur Pogradec, jai crois, le long de la route, plusieurs personnes qui vendaient des noisettes. Tandis que certains taient occups la cueillette, dautres cassaient les noisettes avant de les mettre en sachet. Jai choisi de marrter prs de cet Albanais sympathique en plein travail dans son abri de fortune. Au-dessus de lui, ses quelques chvres broutaient tranquillement ct dune petite cascade. Je lui ai achet deux sachets de sa prcieuse rcolte, sans avoir toutefois russi marchander le prix (jai remarqu que les Albanais taient trs durs en affaires !).
