    ... to get the plastic off with. He produced a tool that looked like the thing you keep in the car for bashing out windows and cutting through seatbelts. He spent a few minutes patiently sawing away at the plastic and voila!, he got them off. My hero for the day!

    Bought a ticket from a self-service machine (cost: 1 lev) to take the Metro into Sofia. The station was nice (brand new, actually, as of this past April) and the trains were clean and roomy. The ride ...

    When I first got there, my brother was home with Zari, who'd been under quarantine for a week with a case of the measles. She didn't remember me so she was shy at first, but that lasted for about 45 seconds.
