An Aussie in Bulgaria...Diary

Hi all,
I have just stumbled across this fascinating diary of an Aussie (namely Sue Mercer) who me and Darren met in Sept.
The diary is a bit back to front but stick with it as it's brilliant reading and tells it how it is.
Enjoy :D

My missus complained that the site is too critical of BG. Too many negatives !

Just loved it!

Don't think it is negative - everyone complains about builders in every country in the world!

Hi

She sounds familar to me as well. I was giving a quotation to an Aussie who got mugged and she was spending time in and out of police stations. Have not had time to go through the diary. Is it the same person?

Regards

Chippy

I am Bulgarian and I thought that the diary was very truthful and quite positive. The negatives that she mentions - burocracy and unprofessional tradesmen - are facts of life and the sooner we admit to them the sooner they will be fixed. No point in hiding our heads in the sand.

But readin' between the lines I detect this attitude of 'I am in this wild country surrounded by savages. Aren't I brave !'

I can see why Bulgars would be a bit put off.
