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.

There was no way I was going to be able to get them off, so I stopped at the Lost and Found at Baggage Claim, and one of the young men got some scissors to try and cut off the ties for me. However, TSA had tightened them all the way, so there was no slack at all, which meant scissors couldn't do anything.

... with the boyfriend of my friend Nikki (suitemate and good friend from UNC, living in Sofia, working for the state dept) at the Sofia train station and we knew we were probably going to be at least 2 hrs late. So, as we crossed the border and said goodbye to Lance's Turkish SIM card GBs, we sent a late-night email to Nikki telling her bf to meet us at 2pm instead of noon. Meanwhile, the busload of turkish kids boarded our train car (of course) and proceeded ...
... Cathedral (built between 1882-1912 - post Ottoman rule). Most Bulgarians are Bulgarian Orthodox Christians. As I mentioned in my earlier post, taking pictures inside these religious buildings is prohibited. Suffice it to say...all are breathtaking. Soaring domes, ostentatious (but beautiful and large-than-life) chandeliers, dramatic murals and mosaics, candelabra, incense burners, and lots of icons of Jesus, Mary, and other saints. There was ...
