A village in a time wharp
It would be a crime to visit Montenegro & not visit Lake Skadar say the guide books. We duly followed & ended up in a little house right over the lake! A bird watchers paradise – largest bird sanctuary in Europe & apparently has 7 pairs of shaggy pelicans (but in May they nip over to Albania so we didn’t see them). The lake is ethereal – 30km long 2/3 in Montenegro & 1/3 in Albania.
At night we had to shout to be heard over what we thought were ducks, but turned out to be frogs - they were definitely 'quacking'.
The Pelikan restaurant is a gem – quirky or what! But apparently the ex-royalty eat there http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/main.jhtml?xml=/travel/2003/06/07/etmonte.xml
