... to Plovdiv to try and get some cash out before venturing through the mountains. Just past town we were diverted, little did we know this would be the buzz word for Bulgaria! Diverted off the main highway, onto a small road, that got smaller and smaller and the pot holes started to outnumber the amount of Tarmac left. It was slow going and the short journey turned long.

Gas station break at 1415 for 20M. No self serve here. Bought an ice cream bar [2.5]. The name of the town where we stopped was Gotse Delchev, a national Bulgarian revolutionary hero. We saw his mausoleum at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Skopje.

They would put a nail through their very sensitive nose and lead them along or jerk them to get a reaction. They also had their claws removed. Pretty horrific stuff

This sanctuary had been set up by the Brigitte Bardot foundation back in 2000 and there is no entry fee, so definitely a worthy cause. It costs around $7.50 ...

Hermits and the Bulgarian Disco

... as both Baba's had also consumed a fair amount of Rakia by this stage and appeared to be dancing to different rythyms. We joined in with gusto and showed them how Aussies could also shake their booty.

After the disco session, the Baba's grabbed some of the other girls and shuffled them next door and taught them how to make the local pom poms. The girls came back a while later proudly displaying their hand made souvenirs. All in all, a very entertaining night.
