... of translation time. I feel like a rambled the whole thing but I did it and nobody yelled at me (they actually smiled the whole time! Haha!)

... here in Bulgaria for her third visit. Filip, originally from Skopje, Macedonia, has lived in Sofia for six years and is going for his masters degree in interior design. He and other volunteers lead these tours 365 days a year. We follow him to St. Nedelya which he explains means St. Sunday in Bulgarian. He tells the story of the 1924 bombing. The communist terrorists first killed a general, knowing that his funeral would be held here and attended by King Boris. They managed to ...
