Wednesday was travel day. I left my room Prague a little before 9 and got to my lodging in Sofia at 6:30 that evening. Biss and I still manged to meet for a while to catch up and discuss the plans for my time here. Sadly, there is nothing new to report on Draga. A large number of Syrian refugees have crossed into the country via Turkey. This has had a domino affect on others who have refugee status, including Aaron. Consequently, his paper were taken and his future here is uncertain.
The pictures will hopefully give a little taste of life in Sofia. In spite of all the new shops, street vendors are still common. wealth and extreme poverty co-exist within the same city block. The weather is still warm enough to spend time outside, but it is hazy enough that the mountain is almost hidden from sight.
