@hahohihi Well, first, I do live in Mladost. Second, I actually think that there’s something lovely and very interesting about Mladost. Classically beautiful? Heck no. But worth taking pictures of? I think so.
I have been reading your blog for a while now, just anonymously, without leaving any comments.
It started with curiousity. I was thinking what can an American, who is living is Sofia, has to say about the city, the country, the people… And so I was very curious to see how you feel there and what your thoughts are and so on… Now i keep on reading it, because somehow I got used to it. I really like your way of writing and expressing your thoughts and overall your blog is quite interesting ^__^
Yeah…well that is all from me…I jsut wanted to share my thoughts 🙂 Keep up the cool posts and have a nice time in Bulgaria.
oh btw. I used to live there (Mladost 1) from 2007-2009, interesting years ….not great, but not bad too…there is some sort of beauty I must admit 🙂 …i feel a bit nostalgic seeing the photos, though I am happy I am out of there (just to make it clear – not ’cause of the neighbourhood, just bad appartment, creepy upstairs neighbours etc.)
@Kate Hey, thanks so much for your kind comment. I think that there are a lot of people in your boat. I mean it’s not like I can really tell you something you don’t already know it’s just the perspective is different. Oh and I really love writing which helps get me get thinking and writing everyday!!
Year two: teaching English at the American College of Sofia, a private high school. My ongoing romance (albeit tumultuous at times) with this city continues. And my Bulgarian is getting better bit by bit.
