Ringing the changes for breakfast - Jerry had the continental (all kinds of cheese and meat and a particularly odd looking sausage) and I had the French (bit of a shock when you're expecting a croissant and it's full of chocolate, but managed to struggle through more than I should).
And I realised who the restaurant guy is - he's the creepy man you'd expect to open the front door if you visited Dracula's castle! I haven't seen him smile at all, but now suspect it's to ...
... Jerry tried the cold soup (torrator????) like runny tzatziki in a glass to be drunk through a straw. How odd - it tasted fine, and I honestly think that if I ate it with a spoon, I'd like it. But couldn't get past drinking garlic through a straw. I guess I'm not ready for Heston yet!

Our bus to Burgas didn't leave until 15.00, so we had all morning and early afternoon to explore Varna further. Our destinations were the Roman thermae (public baths) and the Archaeological Museum.
After breakfast we checked out and put our rucksacks in the hostel's luggage storage before heading out to the thermae. These ruins are expansive and well preserved; enough of the walls survive for the layout of the different rooms to be seen clearly - the changing ...
