There’s a guy who has built his own island on a riverbed at the foot of the Prokletije Mountains in Kosovo. I got his attention and he waved us across.
Let me show you…
You walk through some bushes
You get to here
Then you have to cross the river
There’s this guy that lives here
He spent 2 years making his own island on the river bed
It’s kind of like a hotel
It has guest beds
and sports facilities
A washing machine
An ensuite bathroom
A place to chill
This is where he sleeps
There’s also a fire and chimney in here
I asked him why he’s done this and he told me to close my eyes and listen to the river. But who is this guy? he didn’t speak much English and I can’t speak any Kosovan Albanian, but from what I could understand, he’s a dentist or dental technician. He did have good teeth.
What do you reckon? would you live here?
