    ... the bottle and getting somethingelse to quench my thirst.

    At 6pm, the 365 organization runs a free tour of Sofia. They call themselves that because they run the tour every day, regardless of weather. Our guide, Slavyan, was amazing! The tour was more than worth the time and certainly more than worth the price. (Plan on leaving a nice tip because you'll love the tour.)

    ... like the Coliseum and it all seems unreal when the country is nearly broke. In the smaller towns there are no sealed roads, only red dirt. There is a lot of wheat grown here and when we went over the mountains again there was even more wheat but this time all the farms are more like in NZ with proper paddocks rather than just strips. We are lucky that our tour leader has taken us on a lot of back roads so that ...
