Albanian Currency

Several trips to Albania between 1992 and 2001 gave me the opportunity to eat a lot of burek (*belch*) and Gjirokaster cheese (*gogësimë*), among other things, and pay for them with Albanian Lek. What they’re using today is quite different, but these are the notes and coins that I was familiar with.

At the time, it was about 100 Lek to the dollar. That made dinner on the street supremely cheap. Wish I could go back – I miss a lot of people there.
