A man catches a turkey to sell it for New Year's Eve dinner in the village of Baldushk near Tirana on December 30, 2013. Most Albanians cannot afford to buy a turkey, the traditional dish for the New Year's Eve dinner, as it costs around 7,000 Leks (50 euros), almost half of a state monthly salary and equal to pension payments.
