Manhole Cover Cork Trivet-Tirane

Once part of Tito’s Yugoslavia, Tirana is the capital of Albania (which borders on the Adriatic.) A mainly mountainous country with a unique language Albania is notoriously corrupt with a heavy dose of extreme poverty. It’s been so bad that manhole covers have been known to disappear from the streets leaving gaping holes. A dangerous and sad situation. This cover features the communist star, the city and state in Albanian as well as a proverb that reflects the current situation regarding manhole cover theft.
