... time estimate to get to Rila Monastery ballooned from 2H yesterday to 2.5H today [took 10M shy of 2H]. Daniela has to improve her time estimates. She is not allowed to guide outside Macedonia. Realized I left the olives and the cheese in the fridge. Talk afoot of skipping a lunch break to get to Sofia sooner. The last leg from the monastery to Sofia is 2H 15M.

If only it was that simply. I had to go to the police station in Dimitrovgrad and then the Immigration Office in Sofia to get the documents I needed to get the visa. Chaos. Efficiency is ...

... 7am though we got going. Still no computer system, just a stamp in the passports. Not sure why this couldn't have been done at midnight so we didn't have to wait!!!!
But disaster struck again. Hit a car, or a car hit us, coming into Sofia. Another 2 hour delay. But no- one hurt so OK.
