Smugglers have used speedboats to cross the Adriatic

The Albanian parliament has banned speedboats and other small private vessels from coastal waters, to tackle drugs and people smuggling.

Hefty fines will punish anyone caught flouting the ban - although boats used for fishing and transport, as well as police and military ships, are exempt.

The three-year ban will affect around 2,000 speedboat owners.

Albania's Capital Gets a New Coat Print E-mail
Albanian Tourism @ New York TimesWHEN the Communist regime in Albania collapsed in 1991, Albanians rushed to Tirana, the capital, to occupy any free space they could find, and the parks and public spaces there virtually disappeared under a maze of makeshift kiosks and flimsy illegal buildings. "Everyone created their own small 'America,' " Tirana's mayor, Edi Rama, said one afternoon in May as he relished the sautéed eel at Rozafa on Luigj Gurakuqi Street. "Anarchy became the energy of the city."

Albania's Unexpected Rewards Print E-mail
Albanian Tourism @ New York TimesFriends had been mystified by my decision to sign up for a two-week package tour of Albania with the British company Explore. Their image was of a poverty-ridden backwater barely in the 20th century, much less the 21st, and recent history held out little to change their minds. Widespread rioting preceded the first post-Communist elections, in 1992, and the ballot box did not come close to resolving the country's problems. In 1997, the collapse of a giant Ponzi scheme led to a nationwide upheaval in which rioters destroyed factories, army barracks, hotels and scores of other buildings.
