The Middle Ages were ending when Ottoman invaders claimed Bulgaria in the 14th Century, and I was a bit overwhelmed with the twists and turns of the 2400 year period! …

Do you remember what you were doing last Monday? Yup, me neither. Let's see if some of these photos jog my memory. Before I tell you about my second time in Sofia, Bulgaria, I must tell you about how I got there.

Just before I left on this trip my boss warned me that I should plan to get to the Tel Aviv airport no less than three hours …

I take a cab across town past crumbling high rise apartments to the foothills of Vitosha and the formidable Soviet-era building that houses the National Museum of History.  Built as the official residence of communist leader Todor Zhivkov in the 1970s (it had no bedrooms …

Playing it safe

After last night's flouting of local ordinance and social convention, I spend a more circumspect morning, secreting no scraps from the breakfast buffet, sending a bundle of disreputable clothing off to be laundered, pumping extra leva from the ATM (by the way, there are 100 stotinki - far away the best name for pocket change of all world currencies …

At 11, I loiter in front of the Palace of Justice where the Free Sofia Tour (http://www.freesofiatour.com/) begins twice daily.

    The location of the Sheraton Sofia is excellent, but lack of attention to details detract from appearance. Planters outside bare and trashy, lovely view from not-so-clean room, breakfast buffet a disappointment. Not up to Sheraton standards.

    A beautiful building in the heart of Sofia. Walking distance to almost all attractions. Attentive service, beautiful hallways. Rooms are small, but ornate.
