I went back to Peja the other weekend to spend a little time with some other volunteer friends. Peja is absolutely beautiful. It is located at the base of the “cursed mountains” in northwest Kosovo. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend going for a hike there.
I also previously blogged about Majlinda Kelmendi, Kosovo’s first Olympic gold medal winner. Peja is her hometown. There are photos of her everywhere. I took advantage of this opportunity:
And THEN, just last week, the Peace Corps posted this photo to their Facebook page. One of our staff members and another volunteer got to meet the REAL Malindja Kelmendi! How cool is that?!?
