    Serbia and Sofia - Stereotypes and Socialists

    ... an entire country. I remember reading something about Bulgaria being at war with Serbia, which would explain both the slow crossing the boarders between the countries, and the apparent poverty - not purely due to Soviet society, but also wars. I did enjoy the amount of cheese the Bulgarians eat. The Boreks for breakfast were delicious with their warm fatty pastry. It will be a city and a country I am not jumping to return to, but again one that I wish I knew more ...

    ... the little towns near the stables. There were like three little towns that they sort of combined into one big town, or thats what they told us. The two other people that were picked up as well were from The Netherlands and were doing one of the trails. So we were all dropped at the guest house and we pretty much had a mini apartment instead of just a room. It was huge. The lady that ran the guest house was absolutely amazing! The food she cooked was to die for! We ...

    ... We found a 100% organic restaurant just 2 blocks away from our hostel which Terrea was eager to try out. The menu is small but super reasonable (nothing over about $11) with all organic wines as well (for $3 a glass). The dinner was awesome, shared 3 different dishes with super fresh ingredients and it was easily one of our best meals. The following morning, we ended up getting a free walking tour around the city which wasn't as thrilling as we'd hoped but ...

    ... to taking taxis, lucky they were pretty cheap! I'd like to return one day to Bulgaria and visit the rila mountains and seven lakes and spend some time hiking, definitely to see parts of Bulgaria with some culture rather than its capital city. Still glad to have visited though! Tonight we were hoping on getting the overnight train to Istanbul, however when we arrived at the train station, the lady said there were no more tickets available. ...

    ... and efforts. This has been another record busting year and the distribution trip was our biggest and most ambitious yet. We are seeing changes here in Bulgaria but they are slow and in the meantime thousands of children are slipping into a hinterland of drugs, crime and prostsitution. Christmas boxes won't stop this but you'd be surprised at the part they play in our wider work to combat these issues. One day perhaps we won't send Christmas presents ...
