... bags at the station, grabbed our backpacks and hit the city. For 1 lev, we took the metro 2 stops back to the Palace of Justice. 1 American dollar is 1.54 Bulgarian lev. Live and learn! :) I find that fascinating, because I'm in Serbia now. 1 American dollar = 94.95 Serbian dinars. When I exchanged $60 this morning, they gave me 5,472.04 dinars. I felt so rich.

Poverty and abandonment are entwined in Bulgaria. When we got back to Sofia this afternoon, we saw first hand the poverty of an inner city Roma community in Moderno Predgradie. Here we gave Christmas Boxes to ...
