And Everything Else

On Friday, I went to Stara Zagora to have dinner with two PCVs who live there. I planned on taking the 21:30 bus back.  However the bus station was closed so I headed back and met up with them again. We stayed at a bar until my train at 1am. There was a cover band there that was really good. His English while singing was excellent but I don’t know if he could speak much. When he sang a British song, he got an English accent and when he sang Lynard Skynard, he got a Southern accent. The packed with drunk Brits. Like, they couldn’t stand up, they were so drunk.

On Saturday, I went grocery shopping. I had decided to make chili, but didn’t have all the ingredients. I stopped at my baba for some onions and tomatoes. She looked at my groceries and asked me what I was making. I told her I was making Chili and cornbread; American food. She seemed interested. I gave her some bon boni as I wasn’t able to see her on my birthday. “AYE! Wait here!” She ran out to her house and returned with some palachinka, a tastey Bulgarian treat. It’s fried dough (like a doughnut) covered in powder sugar. I spent the rest of the day cooking chili and corn bread while listening to Bob Marely.

Today was such a beautiful day. It was sunny and temperatures in the low 60’sF. I decided to take advantage of this weather and I went on a hike around town. Here are a few of my photos:

Part of the high school. This section remains unfinished from after the Berlin Wall fell. The Municipality can’t do anything about it since it’s property of the central government.
