'Cause we are small and they are big..

When you go to a conference, a #t-shirt is often presented as a sign of appreciation for coming. For the "Free Software in Balkans 2010" conference, the “Ismail Qemali” University of Vlora outdid itself by presenting us with beautiful polo shirts with the name of the conference at the back and the logo of the university at the front.

In Albania, the men are men and the women are beautiful. Both come in two sizes; small and medium. Most of the speakers who came to Albania, were XL or as in my case XXL this made fitting in the school banks a bit awkward.

The conference itself was stellar. Great speakers covering everything from the GNU make tools, the Autocad file formats, UNIX history and even Wiki promotion and localisation. For me it was a privilege to come to Albania and I want to thank for the friendly hospitality we received.
