... lots of campsite was only one, that was closed! I popped into a wine store for any other directions for another site and he confirmed there were no others... But thought a nearby winery might allow people to stay. Good enough for us, so we set off. A guy was near the gates waiting and let us in, we realised that the wine store guy has kindly called ahead. I cooked up a mince pasta dish that was pretty damm tasty as the guys entertained the ...
... Dome called them 'these two' re still having to tip.
The twisting roads ended at 1340 at the Greek border. Only three passports went inside: those of Daniela, the Mouse and yours truly. We went through a tunnel to the Bulgarian side. All passports went inside but were back withiin 5M, on our way by 1400.

We hiked up to Ivan Rila's tomb. Had some time on our own with the ward who introduced us to the tame robins that flew on my hand.
Many Bulgarians come up to this place for religious reasons, leave whishes in the wall, fetch source's water. Interesting to see where the Orthodox Church leaves room for connectedness with nature. I however don't believe that Ivan slept in this cave for 7 years without even preparing himself a mattress.
We tried to venture over from the lift station to Ivan Vazov Hut. We knew that the hut is open and we had food for self-supply with us. There was quite some new snow lately unfortunately after a snow-meagre winter. Later the day bad weather came in that was forecasted to sustain for the following days. All in all reasons for us to buy a ticket on the lift down again and postpone the Rila mountain crossing to a later date.
