The flight to Sofia was short and on time.  It is great to finally be in a place I will stay long enough to bother to unpack.  I have never been so excited about a washing machine before.  I met Biss for supper and to iron out details of the weekend.  Seeing him is a pleasure. After supper we walked a bit.  Winter has come here.  I need to get acclimated.  I also got to speak with Savella.  She is overjoyed with positive medical news about an issue that had been of great concern.  We will all meet tomorrow for study and discussion.
