    The Eyeball of Bansko

    10 of us jumped into two private buses this morning with our driver, Jorgi again, to drive up the nearby ski resort of Mt Vihen, at around 2500 metres. Our guide, Kraski, was a local ski instructor. He had won three bronze and one silver in the Bulgarian downhill and slalom so a pretty fit character. He took us for a half an hour walk up the hillside to a lake, through the snow.

    We thought it was going to be a ...

    Dancing with Bears

    ... br> Monti, one of the blind bears, had a 3/4 acre area, whereas they had several in various enclosures ranging from 6 acres to about 9 acres. There are about 32 bears here in total. Most of the bears had re-learned how to hibernate and one was now hibernating for 6 months of the year. One of the other ones, still hadn't hibernated at all. In all, it was tragic to hear about the bears's former lives but incredibly rewarding to see them now in a much better environment

    Back on private transport this morning and we took a 2 hour bus trip to Rila Monastery. Built for Saint John the miracle-working hermit from the 9th Century, it is located in a beautiful spot in the hills, and surrounded by snow capped mountains. It is an incredible place for the monastery, which was rebuilt in the 19th century, so quite modern and has a very distinctive look. We had a quick glance through the church, as, by this stage, we have seen a fair few churches. ...

    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.
