... the hotel around 1 and you know what that means...nana nap time! So after some serious snoozing, we got up around 2 and wandered around the village of Bansko, heading down some lovely little alleyways and spent the rest of the day just chillling out in local bars and cafés drinking beer and coffee and relaxing and catching up on our photos and blog time.

It was really great to have a nice chill-out day in the ...

Dancing with Bears

... would train these poor bears in this Pavlovian way. Some bears were blind, as they plied them with alcohol to get them to perform better. 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 ...

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.

... owned as the chair lift goes up to about 2000M and then you walk up an extra 100M to view the first lake and a further 500m to view all the lakes. (I think I have those heights right, if not, I am close to it.) Anyway, we might try again to get there if we have some sunny weather over the next few days. But that is not the end of today's story. We had car problems - again. This time we had made sure we hired from a reputable company that included roadside assistance as ...
