BG had a very big transition and all in all thankfully has been a relatively peaceful one

there was never going to be a magic wand

Seems to be changing for the better,I have always believed Bulgarias best days are ahead and also think many people will come back

Now that the country is safely in the hands of the New Oligarchs we can all relax.

if anyone thinks it's only Bulgaria that is ruled by oligarchs they are living in La la land.

I had lunch with a very well connected friend the other day who said it was worse than 2000 with the political elite completely subverted by organised crime and absolutely no control over EU funds. Thankfully I am well out of that game, kneecaps still intact.

Bulgaria is very much like England. Wonderful people with great fortitude, pride and reverence to their history.
We have however been afflicted with bad neighbours.
Just saying.
