Flag of Bulgaria  , Sofiya,
Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Our first full day in Bulgaria saw the sun blazing away and the arrival of the SC translation team to join the fun. Peter, Bogi and Viki have been on this trip before but for Radostina this is all new; we'll be nice to her for a couple of days...

This afternoon we visited the House of Joshua (HoJ) to catch up with some of the residents there including Niki, Marian and Ivanka as well as ex-residents Tsetsi and Iva. If you don't konw anything about the Trussell Trust's House of Opportunity Programme (of which HoJ is a part) then click here to find out more.
The team had a lot of fun with the HoJer's down at the local stream; cooling of and messing about. The residents at HoJ really look forward to seeing the youth team each year and it is special for both sides to get together and just have a good time. the river may not be the cleanest but as long as you don't swallow it all will be well- as the video shows...

Tomorrow it's another early start as the youth team catch a 4am bus, fill it with travel-sick prone kids and enjoy a seven hour trip in the heat to the seaside. I so wish I could be with them but I have other stuff to do so I'll let them tell you all about it from tomorrow.
