A rainy Sunday in Sofia, Bulgaria. Thracian, Roman, Communist – there was a bit of all and more, as we learned on our two hour free walking tour (a must-do when in Sofia). And while it rained heavily and relentlessly during our tour (to the point that my rain jacket, sweater, and blouse were entirely soaked through), the sun did emerge eventually in the afternoon to transform the city and, with it, our entire day. 

Walkable streets winding around old Roman ruins, bland stone architecture, exotic and colorful cathedrals, the domes of former mosques painted over and changed into museums. And with a clear sky, we could see the mountains surrounding us in all directions. 

I ate so much delicious Bulgarian food at the tavern for dinner. Stomach, heart, day – full.
