Bathers in Benje Permet

Celebrating the Summer Day through the revival of nature.

These photos are made in Thermal Waters of Benje, during my visit in Permet, for the celebration of Summer Day in 14 march 2016. This date is a national festivity in Albania, celebrated every year in different parts of the country. The festivity is old and is traced to ancient times, with pagan rituals and traditional food, that symbolize the end of winter and the joy for the beginning of summer.  I was happy to spend this day in an unusual way, making bath and photos in the Thermal Waters of Benje, a very near locality of Permet, while in the surrounding mountains of Nemercke there had been snowing a day before.
