The first place I went to contrasted greatly to the traditional Bulgarian Orthodox church interior and icons I'd seen the day before; the Monument to the Soviet Army, which was built in 1954. Unsurprisingly, it looked very uncared-for, with some graffiti about and some grass growing between many of the paving stones. I stood about for a while, picturing parades that may well have taken place there. Rather surreally, there was a sculpture of a giant spoon next to it.

... note, a 50, at an exchange kiosk and receive 5650 dinars. I feel quite flush. Back to the bus station, I slap down 1500, scoop up ticket, change, and passport and now have just six hours to kill before bus time. With 4300 dinars burning a hole in my pocket, I make for the park inside the grounds of the fortress and order a cup of coffee at a cafe. 80 dinars. If I sit here all afternoon I could enjoy another 52 cups and have change to spare. I knock ...
