Flag of Bulgaria  , Sofia,
Friday, April 25, 2008

(S) Pulling into Sofia at 8 in the morning, we were impressed with the modernity of the train station. We were soon less impressed with the international ticket office where we were not sure if we had a ticket to Istanbul or Kiev. Fingers crossed for Istanbul.

Next was finding the Avis office, which was somewhere downtown.  Nice. We wandered around for a while, had a giant fight for good measure to get it out of the way for Bulgaria, and found the car rental place in some back alley of Sofia, complete with giant guard dog. We left Sofia immediately if not sooner and headed for Rila Monastery.

(C) On this town, I do not disagree one bit.  It seems Sofia might not make the top fifty list - partly because they don't think addresses are important, at all - partly because nearly every person we met scowled at us.  These people seem really unhappy, although I guess if I lived here I might be too.  We did find the car rental place, no smiles and got out of dodge asap.
