The point I was making for those of you who need 2 + 2 to = 5 was that Croatia had very bad roads,infrastructure,damaged property,smashed economy,refugees etc etc etc. Parallels can be drawn to some extent to a war damaged country like Croatia to Bg.
Today you would not know anything of Croatia's very recent history if you went there, the point being that when the EU decide to rebuild a country and an economy they can actually do it, therefore although Moscow Wolf looks to be very senior in age it is still possible that Bulgaria could be significantly improved by his last howl
Actually, I added 2+2 and got 6.
It is usual, is it not that since post war Germany and the lessons learned after WWI to pump money into war zones to keep folk happy. I have a friend that has an apartment in Budva - Montenegro and I don't hear him complaining about their infrastructure either.
You or I never know when our last howls might be, but I hope I go out with a HOWL and not a croak.
Ps. Concerning Croatia's recent history and not knowing anything about it if you went there. Well, a Russian friend of mine did go there not so many years ago for New Year and was surprised just how many locals came out at midnight New Year's Eve blasting off their Kalashnikovs.
By comparison, in my Bulgarian village, the celebration consisted of one drunk shooting his shotgun into the air and another firing a gas pistol. Hence, my fireworks this year.
