Хоро Kонцерт

Last night was the horo performance that I’ve been practicing for for about two months. It was a tremendous amount of fun. It was another lady’s first time dancing the horo in front of so many people. The rest of the group joked that she was in the “Peace Corps group”. She was quite nervous and smoked at least a half pack backstage. She also had a flask of whiskey that she kept offering to Andrea and I. “ликвиден кураж!” (liquid courage!) she said every time she took a swig. Before the show, Andrea and I were presented certificates and wooden Bulgaria plates. The certificates state “You will always have friends in Bulgaria”. I am truly integrating.

    bravo na vas. you are the integration hero. Actually, you might be on the verge of too integrated. Can you really be a Peace Corps volunteer if you become a full fledged Bulgarian? I don’t think so. Back off, James. Back off.
