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.

... for coffees, enjoy lunches and dinners in one of the many cafes or mehanas (restaurants), have a manicure and pedicure (at least I did) and Gallagher had a haircut as you should be able to see by the photos. We also braved it and hired a car again for a week despite our last (mis) adventure. So yesterday, our first day with the car, we visited Bulgaria's most famous monastery the Rila Monastery which was built in the 1830s It was quite spectacular with its four ...
