Theres only one Lancastrian that bought in Vaglen and I am he.Not off ebay in the dark but after carefull consideration and against the advice of my bulgarian friend,mentor and local businessman who lives in Yarabichna.
Yes there is a very large garbage dump that certainly stinks when the wind is in the right direction(it also provides an income for about a third of the local population who scavange there)As for the village itself it is rather poor with limited facilities mainly ramshackle houses packs of stray dogs(most of whom seem to be residing in my garden at the moment)
About 60% roma population who as of yet have only robbed about 2levs worth of wire and half a cube of wood(which as far as im concerned is well offset by the hospitality, food ,rakia and deafening chalga they have showered on me)
The local bar is reminisant of a saloon in the scariest cowboy movie ya ever did see.
Would I recommend you buy there ? Please god no the last thing we need in Vaglen is ten foot white washed walls new builds and the moral brigade stopping us slaughtering pigs in the street keep away at all costs.
As for me ive only been away a week and i cant wait to get back to my little bit of paradise behind Varnas dump.
