The trip to Sofia was successful. I was dealing with a mild case of food poisoning, but have recovered. I made a silly mistake that I am thankful wasn’t more costly. Upon arriving in Bulgaria, I spoke with an old acquaintence who has lots of experience with real estate. When I described Draga’s situation, he said she was clearly in the right, but no one would care. Later I met Biss. We spent our time discussing the death of his father and some questions he is grappling with. That was the pressing need of the evening.
