“There’s a saying that goes: ‘Albania is fun-fun, Europe is work-fun, and the U.S. is work-work’,” says Erdit Zeneli. His right-hand man nods in agreement.
“Where we come from, people work then go out and have a good time. But in the U.S. they just work and work and work.”
If you don’t understand this important fact about Albania, it may be hard to grasp the restless spirit of guys like Endrit and Erdit, both of whom were born and raised in the Mediterranean country. If you’re into the homebody type, these guys are not it. Now, if you’re into the type who’s always up for something new and exciting, it doesn’t get any better.
With the deficiency of genuinely hot guys on campus (Temple’s not exactly known for our eye candy), it may be hard not to notice these two. They’re always on the move, looking for a good time and almost always together.
It’s funny to think this hilarious duo didn’t click when they originally met in high school, but after meeting again in college, the chemistry was undeniable. Together, Endrit with his tall, strong stature and stunning blue eyes and Erdit with his exotic look and heavy European accent, have been evoking smiles and stealing hearts ever since. Oh, and you’re welcome.
