Raining at the Monastery

BULGARIA | Tue, 29 Sep 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [428]

Another cold, rainy day yesterday.  The weather report indicated it was supposed to  clear up, but that has not happened. The weather has just been miserable. I have come to the horrible conclusion that maybe my days of wearing shorts on this ... Read more >

Yesterday was another cold rainy day here in Sofia. I started the day by going to the Museum of Socialist Art, which seemed like it would be interesting.  Plus, it should be warm and dry.   First I had to find the museum. I thought it ... Read more >
