Although Bulgaria is a member of the European Union, it is not Schgen Area. So, I don’t need to hurry in this land.
At the beginning it is very quiet road. The closer I cycle to the capital, the busier I feel. Today it is extremely hot. Oh..
It is too late to go to the capital, so I stop at the city in the night. Kind local people invite me to their house and we share Rakija which is very strong until very late night. Although we don’t understand each other’s language we have so much fun with a body language.
Around the capital, there is a short bicycle’s path.
It is the center of the capital which is too busy with tourists and local people.
While fixing spoke at the bicycle shop, the owner says 4 dollar is only for cleaning. So, I give him my bicycle.
Always I feel so good after cleaning bicycle.
I do love to have this one!!!!!! But I cannot carry everything I want.
I lost the lock’s key recently.. The bicycle shop said to me U-lock could be cut as well and there is no perfect lock.
Folding link lock is too expensive and heavy, so I buy chain lock for 25$.
I can feel something on Bulgaria’s capital.
The park on the center
My normal meal as a vegan
There is the gas which I can use for my stove in the hostel. I ask to the staff to exchange and he says there is no owner for that gas. So, it is no problem to exchange.
There are many lions which means national symbol.
It was a public bathhouse 25 years ago. Now it is used as a museum.
Spring hot water in the center
I wrote many important words on the map when I had a city tour. But now I cannot remember most of things………….
I should have not delayed the journal!!
There are many people enjoying the sun on the park near the hostel.
There is a ghost on the left of the picture!!!!
The true is it is not a ghost’s picture.
The snack store is on the semi-basement and the worker is looking people passing.
I expect tasty of Mexico. But it is just boiling corns.
I have stayed over five nights in the hostel in Sofia.
I can guess I am closing to the border as seeing many trucks.
I stay too short to feel many things in Bulgaria. I just remember the night I had fund with a local people.
