What a great day we had today! After a two hour drive from Veliko Tărnovo, we arrived in the village of Grogova- up in the hills. This village is a "pomak" village- the word Bulgarians gave to the Bulgarians who converted to Islam during the Ottoman invasion. It was either that or die.

I tried to walk on Maria Luisa farther down but ended up on a highway with no sidewalk so I turned back and decided to have some lunch, sit in the sun and people watch. Bulgarians smoke a lot and there appears to be a tendency toward being overweight. There were some very skinny young women however. I got to ...
