Thats why i didnt mention the name of my village -
I HATE IT and so does my girlfriend, today we have 3 sets of construction work going on within 50m of the house - i work from home - so the tally for the day is 1 chain saw, 1 still saw and about 10 guys with hammers building shuttering and a yapping dog. Yesterday i photographed the rubbish at the side of the bins as it now covers an area 4 x the size of the skip and 2 foot deep AND whats worse is people have taken out MY household rubbish out of the skip and thrown the bags on the floor in order to fill it with more construction waste. Presumably so they dont get aggro for leaving there rubbish at the side.
If you live at the other side of the village 1000m away you are today almost certainly enjoying a peaceful cup of tea in the garden having popped you rubbish down to the nice clean bin passed all the happy wave'y people and the children playing good nat'd'ly in the street. You have every right to think you live in one of the nicest villages in Bulgaria.
I think i would have to conclude that Bulgarian's who have amassed enough wealth to build a 500 m2 villa have generally got there by sh***g on people and dont give a stuff about other people and there lives - it is not likely that they are going to give a stuff about your piece and quiet any more than they give a stuff about the fact there employees arnt paid enough to feed there children properly.
I.E. They dont make very good neighbors.
