Topic: WHY ARE BULGARIAN RAILWAY PLATFORMS SO LOW?

I reckon that the 'meisters' that built the platforms had never seen a train , so just took a line from their van ; simples ! On the other hand , low platforms make it much easier to walk across the tracks , no eh . Tim .

When I first came to Turnovo 5 years ago there were quite a few girls working the streets , and being quite a liberal little city I'm sure there were a few lads too . However a couple of years later when I tried to 'help' some guys in the bar find some action , 'my man' said that they'd all b**ger o...

Well yeah obviously it should be legal ! Everywhere really , but Bulgaria would be a start . Despite countless scientific attempts to show that its harmful (mostly funded by the US government ) they've been unable to come up with any evidence (because there isn't any) , and there are no recorded dea...

In my experience , properly dried cow poo gives off very little smell when burnt . Whatever they're burning down below almost certainly is scavenged from the trash bins , unless they have a particularly good deal on old shoes . Tim .

Yeah , yellowy-brown sulphurous muck billows from a chimney near me . That being said , it might be preferable to the house down the hill from me , whose fuel of preference smells like , and may well be , old shoes ! Tim.

You're right I haven't . Presumably the cheapest way to fly to Varna from the UK will be via Israel next year then . To anybody renting , get everything clear in writing . I guess the upside is there'll be a plethora of fallafal outlets soon . Tim .

Well I suppose a bit of bondage might pull in a few punters as well . But seriously though , with Amsterdam closing its doors to foreigners , surely now would be an ideal time for Bulgaria to step into this niche market by legalizing . It would attract loads of foreign tourists , create jobs , boost...

I'm not quite sure where the Israeli's fit into this topic , but fortunately they don't seem to be too attracted to Bulgaria , as when they latch on to a place they're as bad as the Brits are in trying to take it over . Yes I suppose the EU money will continue to flow , there have been a few project...

Well I asked a mate down the pub (actually a retired engineer) about mains gas central heating in VT where he has a flat (although he normally stays in the village) . He said that a few people in his block had gone for it , but not many due to the high installation costs . His impression was that th...
