Vratsa Bulgaria

This is where I am right now…. in Hotel Hemus in Vratsa Bulgaria.  It’s a great hotel.. very nice and pretty cheap compared to American standards.  It’s 55 leva a night which translates to $35 USD per night and that includes breakfast. 

The breakfast is good… it was particularly good the first day here when we went to eat at the buffet breakfast BEFORE the about 20 high school aged boys that are staying here too.  I believe they are wrestlers and I am not sure what they are doing, however they eat A LOT and sometimes when we get down there, there isn’t much left, but we make due with some bread and maybe an egg or two!  LOL

There is a beautiful square out in front of the hotel… no cars… just walking… then across the little street is blocks and blocks of shops.  Just stores, cafĂ©’s and restaurants.  No cars, only for people walking and it is really nice. 

There are mountains all around here with these beautiful rock cliffs on the sides of them!  Here are some pictures as I ventured around the city yesterday.  It’s a city of about 65,000 people so it’s not at all the size of Sofia (2 million or a bit more) but it’s so pretty here.
