WHERE IN BULGARIA ARE YOU?

This is one of Bulgaria's most popular seaside resorts at a time when... very few visitors come. The 6th of December, in Orthodox hagiography the feast day of St Nicholas – revered also as the protector of seamen, is celebrated here with particular enthusiasm as the majority of those locals not involved with summertime tourism are actually fishermen and live on the sea.

QUOTE-UNQUOTE

"This parliament will be worse than its predecessor. It is full of garrulous people who can spit and spew, but are unfit for any lawmaking. If the Bulgarians want such a pageant, let them have it."
Tatyana Doncheva, leader of Movement 21

BOYKO NOW LEGALLY 'STUPID'

he Sofia Regional Court decided against Plaintiff Boyko Borisov who had sued Nikolay Barekov, a former friend, over a statement Barekov made in 2013 that Boyko was "stupid." The court ruled that calling someone stupid is an offence as long as it is perceived personally. Boyko was not in the TV studio when Barekov called him stupid and did not watch the broadcast as he was on an airplane. Witnesses claim that he got angry later when he was told he had been called stupid. To express that, he took off his jacket and tossed it. Borisov's close aides claim that whenever he takes off his jacket and tosses it, he is usually quite angry.
