A decent funeral may cost anything from 4000 BGN upwards. More in Sofia unless one has a family plot reserved for them and has to purchase one. I have no experience of funerals in the neck of the woods but can confirm that a decent service does last 40 minutes and that the aggrieved widow hardly had...

The clever thing to do would be to repeat and repeat some texts until you,ve learned these by heart. Thus little by little you’ll start speaking Bulgarian. This is how I learn English. It works. Step in Charles Dickens, and in particular Bleak House. Step in foreign language learning and the incred...

And if this is the contribution of a Czeck national (as this national is spelled correctly), can you imagine what the opinion of his French/German/Dutch counterpart would be?

Wait till you get the so-called "изравнителни сметки". Everyone banking on cheap "electric" is in for a big surpirse. Polmachina's bill comes as no surprise. Indeed, it is what everyone pays t...

Why it's all very clear and blunt, in terms the real politik of those countries in which I had have the pleasure to live for any prolonged periods of time. Germany: Don't vote Hitler again (yeah, he was born in Austria, right?). [Remember how we once set out to built them wonderful autobahns]. UK: K...

Excellent indeed! It is high time people were "shocked", especially here at home, into awareness that indeed Bulgaria is not all about Turkish toilets, and as the artist wisely reflects his gesture, "faecally pubertal" in his own words, this act of artistic (and intellectual expression) "seeks to fi...
