LETTER FROM MARIYKA

DEAR VAGABOND

Since visiting Bulgaria last year I've been an avid reader of any news item that makes it into the British press.

However, these mostly concern quirky millionaires trying to buy up a Bulgarian village, a few paragraphs about the impenetrable politics leading up to EU accession in 2007 or, my favourite, tantalising photos of golden Thracian objects. Tantalising, because I passed through the countryside where they were found. Who knows what lay just beneath my feet?

FILES WIDE SHUT

Bulgaria has become the last former Warsaw Pact country to open up its secret Communist-era files. Will it do any good?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, VAGABOND

QUOTE-UNQUOTE

“Regional Development and Public Works Minister Asen Gagauzov managed to shock the entire Bulgarian nation with his statement that all of the country's services were in place during the heavy New Year's snowfall. Nothing can faze the authorities: not the seven cold-weather casualties, not falling awnings, not the pile-up of cars on Sliven's Pentacle Intersection….”

"Looking at the bigger picture, contributions from EU funds make up barely two or three percent of the budget, and I'm sure that the Bulgarian economy can get by without them."

WE'VE GOT MAIL

DEAR VAGABOND,


When I first arrived in Bulgaria, I was struck by the open countryside and the pleasant scenery. As my travels progressed my attention was also drawn to a rather unusual use for litter. It appears that there is a year long litter festival. This festival consists of adorning the trees and bushes with litter, and also along the roadside litter can be seen. There is normally a pile of litter outside each village. Presumably this pile is to further enhance the surrounding area; it can be dipped into as and when required.
