I have been most successful when taking the diametrically opposite position to each of these pieces of sage advice.
The problem now in Bulgaria with both hookers and tradesmen is that with entry to the EU why would anyone with any competency still be in Bulgaria and not earning ten times the money in Berlin or London? I was down at my local strippy the other day and was paying the girls to not take their clothes off. I'm thinking of having a house built and shudder to think of the quality of the remaining 'maestori'. I am seriously considering bringing in British tradesmen, especially for the finishing and fittings. Although not British girls. Things are not yet that bad here.
