Pawel and I got back from Puerto Rico on the 1oth, and I have found out in the meantime that the Albanian elections have indeed been postponed to February (as they have to take place by February 20, 2007). The postponement has led to statements from NATO, the EU, OSCE and others urging the Albanians to have a free and fair elections, so the postponement has upped the pressure for the process to run smoothly.

The picture is of the celebrations for Dia de los Reyes, (Three Kings Day) on January 6. The band onstage is playing a song from Buena Vista Social Club, and this was not the only time that I heard Puerto Rican musicians getting mileage out of that music's popularity.
