... 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!

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.
