Traveling to Sofia was easy. This time I managed to get a good price on a direct flight. That got me there early enough to get settled in before any meetings. I’m staying in an Airbnb flat I have used before, so that simplified things. It was a beautiful warm day, so talented street musicians were out in force. The Bulgarian pipes are especially haunting. Biss and I met for tea to catch up, discuss some ongoing questions, and plan the details of the visit. Later that evening, I had a study with and older man and his nephew. The uncle is a “devout” Catholic who doesn’t believe any of the stories in the Bible are true. He said he wanted to meet again the next day. The Bulgarian leg of the trip is off to a good start.
