I booked at Scotty's since my tour was starting from there. It is centrally located near the major tourist destinations and very near to the Central Synagogue. Breakfast is brought to your room. I found reception to be very helpful in giving directions and tips and they arranged a tour to Rila Monastery for me that was terrific - not inexpensive but the guide was charming, with excellent English, and represented his country very well to tourists.

Sofia itself was ok as a transit city but it definitely didn´t have the vibe of Belgrade. You can see that the years of a Communist regime have really taken their toll on the city and the older people ...
... church that we visited and lots of little shops that we wondered though. We really didn't buy much, but it was fun to look. There was a little coffee shop called Cookies not to far from the Hostel that we frequented most days. The trolley car came by on the street next to it and there was a big square that daily sold books. Unfortunately most of them were in other languages besides English, but I loved to look at them.

Then off to his room where Inga 1 and Inga 2 arrived, razors in hand... (I'm calling all nurses Inga now (pronounced Eeng-gah...lol). Unlike the Greenville Hospital Hotel, the staff on the wards have very limited English and they all remind me of what a nurse named Inga might look like and sound like:~)
