(a nail would ...

good grief! what's going on here? i really can't believe what i've just read. so many people who seem to see some sort of virtue in living in penury. what the hell is wrong with you? we certainly didn't come to BG to live a 'hard' life. quite the reverse, in fact, so if spending a couple of hundred ...

i don't know if anyone else is aware of this, since i was told, by a bulgarian friend, that he saw it on the telly, yesterday. not only should we all be sporting our new vignettes, old vignettes MUST be removed from the windscreen. failure to do so may result in a 100 leva fine. i don't know if that...

i'm a great believer in naming and shaming. i sincerely hope that, if you do trace the person responsible for this unprevoked, malicious verbal attack, that his or her identity will be made known, far and wide. Norman D. PS. though i don't visit yambol personally, may i wish you, kevin, every succes...

go to any of the numerous UPVC window and door makers, cookies, and they'll make a door, with frame, to fit whatever you need. and you can choose your own glass design. i'm afraid i have no idea of the price, but it will depend on the glass you choose. we had a cubicle built since i find the 'wet-ro...

The Yambol Animal Shelter is funded partly by the municipality. The man who is running it is Bulgarian. He is working on a voluntary basis, goes in each morning and swills out the pens and feeds the dogs, then goes off to his day job! A few of us expats have got together and raised some funds to hel...
