... and penned a few notes re the book.
'Of all the gin joints...' What would be the chances the group dinner would be in the same restaurant? With perhaps 80 in town? Esa and Daniela walk past me, sheep in tow. Mr Posh Nosh for some reason came over and mentioned my failed 'avoidance scheme'. Declined two offers to sit with the group [I was almost done my meal and had lots to do on the blog yet]. Back after 2030, finishing up c 2145. Sacked out by 2245.
... 90) for a half litre of good Bulgarian hops, that's a bargain in any man's language!
So the 13 of us hunkered down for an hour and swapped stories of Game of Thrones and drank some local brewskis. We had a couple of the locals stop by and yell some things in Bulgarian at us. None of the townsfolk appear to speak English so everything's done in sign language or smiles. It was all good fun and, as mentioned, the locals seem to get a kick out of having us around. ...
We hiked up to Ivan Rila's tomb. Had some time on our own with the ward who introduced us to the tame robins that flew on my hand.
Many Bulgarians come up to this place for religious reasons, leave whishes in the wall, fetch source's water. Interesting to see where the Orthodox Church leaves room for connectedness with nature. I however don't believe that Ivan slept in this cave for 7 years without even preparing himself a mattress.
We tried to venture over from the lift station to Ivan Vazov Hut. We knew that the hut is open and we had food for self-supply with us. There was quite some new snow lately unfortunately after a snow-meagre winter. Later the day bad weather came in that was forecasted to sustain for the following days. All in all reasons for us to buy a ticket on the lift down again and postpone the Rila mountain crossing to a later date.
... Intense vegetables, well bbq-ed but generally the dishes are heavy on meat.
I imagine the Rila forests take long to grow. They have quite some misty microclimate that sometimes allows huge algae-like moss to grow from the branches. Hiker's trails are badly signed though, somteimes it's not easy to navigate.
