          Old fashioned (pre Soviet) hotel, elegant by local standards. Near the sites. Mildew problems in bath. Coffee machine in room does not shut off automatically. Small stuff like that. The breakfast buffet is excellent and the level of service throughout the hotel is very high.

          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.

          No activities, no meals provided, hot (30 degrees) sunny day. My energy level was not high, so I just settled in.

          At our welcome reception, I met the dozen or so folks I will be travelling with on this Smithsonian tour. The travel agency (AHI) has included other groups (e.g., AMA) on this itinerary, but our small group has its own leaders …

          Another hot, sunny day, but it will be cooler in the mountains this evening.

          After a huge, delicious buffet breakfast we had a lecture on the Bulgarian Revival of the 19th Century. Because of the distance and difficulty of communication, but most especially Ottoman repression, the Bulgarians did not really participate in the Renaissance. E …

          ... who are having the procedure next week so a few of them joined us.
          One of the new people has a friend who had this done & after 3 months he started to see significant changes. The doctors have said that 3-6 months is when you really start to see changes. Some people have some immediate changes, but most of us are more gradual.
          Just 2 more sleeps till we go home.
