The Bosphorus Expense

A travel blog entry by benstevens

No one lived here. The great towers of the mill were cold, and the windows were all broken. No cars were in the car park and grass had taken over the concrete paving. It was a depressing sight.


Ruse to Sofia

... Tarnovo (VT) where, on the day we arrived, we saw the Tour de Bulgaria bike riders. They were completing Stage 3 of the ride from Kazanlak to Elena which took them through VT.

... Bulgarian foods. As we tired, we drove back home for sleep, but instead stayed up until way-too-late (early?) singing more ridiculous music, gossiping about friends at home, and Skyping Nate’s lady and my friend Laura. We horse around until – uh oh – phone call from the landlord. Looks meek, makes whoopsy faces, sinks down in chair. We say goodnight to Laura. Quietness ensues. I sleep blissfully on a pull out couch ...
