This morning, we checked out, stored our luggage, and headed back out to the center.
Other than shop the local kiosk,....our main objective was to visit the Mother Teresa Museum.
The Museum, much like the Saint herself was very unassuming. Kris and I walked reverently around the small structure reading about her history,....viewing her birth certificate, and gazing at her tiny, simple twin bed, and basic, but well worn Rosary.
I was in awe that one ...
... the fence! I screamed of course cause instead of going into the bush he turned around and bolted straight at Veronica's horse and I thought it was going to push her horse into the fence and god knows what would have happened. I managed to pull up my horse rather quickly as well which was good and Sim said the dad practically vaulted off his horse and came running back to see what had happened. Ended up the dad had to lead my horse through the bush with me still on it. ...
... We found a 100% organic restaurant just 2 blocks away from our hostel which Terrea was eager to try out. The menu is small but super reasonable (nothing over about $11) with all organic wines as well (for $3 a glass). The dinner was awesome, shared 3 different dishes with super fresh ingredients and it was easily one of our best meals. The following morning, we ended up getting a free walking tour around the city which wasn't as thrilling as we'd hoped but ...
... to taking taxis, lucky they were pretty cheap! I'd like to return one day to Bulgaria and visit the rila mountains and seven lakes and spend some time hiking, definitely to see parts of Bulgaria with some culture rather than its capital city. Still glad to have visited though! Tonight we were hoping on getting the overnight train to Istanbul, however when we arrived at the train station, the lady said there were no more tickets available. ...
kids all smiling,
sad w'ere going;
there's always next year.
