... lulled by the waves and sound of welding - repairing stuff ready for the season!
Back to Nessebar (more dreadful driving en route. Why do people - mostly in big Mercs - seem to need to overtake whether or not it's safe?) for a shower, and out for dinner. Somehow missed lunch, so feeling hungry now.
Such a hassle with bank cards - we tried 3 today and none worked! Spent ages on the phone checking with the bank, but no problem with them and no evidence that ...
