I believe it's a very narrow-minded approach to the Bulgarian reality. Bad news sell better than the good ones, so good job - you managed to entertain your readers at Bulgarians' expense. Yes, there are problems, but it seems that you overexpose them. I would enjoy reading a more balanced and objective piece. And it's one thing being in BG as a tourist who doesn't speak the language and misunderstands the situation. Try living there and I bet you'll understand it better and get to like it more.

And what about Rikia?

It was exciting seeing Bulgaria in the travel section, but I don't think you did it justice, particularly Sofia. For one, there aren't horse (donkey) and buggies roaming the streets - it's actually illegal to drive it in the city! Here is a link with pictures depicting the more honest, beautiful sights around Sofia. Enjoy!-- http://picasaweb.google.bg/rkoynova/Sofia_Sep...

His problem is that he was born slovak - a Monkey nation with a Monkey history.
