So we will keep in touch. Please write me in a bit of advance when you are coming. I will make sure to answer you with no delay, but you never know when something might come up. I'm saying this so not to ruin any plans or waste your limited time here in Bulgaria.
Thank you for undestanding my situation. I want to be most honest so as not to meslead you in any way. If there is anything else specific you would like to know about me, feel free to ask. The last thing I want is to waste your time if you do come to Bulgaria and Sofia specifically.
Yes, it would be nice to go to the markets together. I will be searching for better ones when I go back to Sofia in October..
Good luck and may things happen in the best possible way for you.. :)
I'd be happy to meet with you of course, but maybe I should have told you something important earlier. I am not eating raw right now, to be completely honest I'm not even vegetarian anymore. There are many reasons, I hope I haven't mislead you much. My profile here is very old and you've probably noticed that I am not active here. I haven't deleted it because I don't want to lose touch with this wonderful site. My goals as I have written on my profile haven't changed much but are for the far future for now. I am very young and still have a long way to go, it's hard to explain. However my interests in health and raw veganism are alive. You needed to know all this. If you still want to meet, I'd be happy to. In October I'll be in Sofia for sure.
And, yes I did come from a very spiritual place when I found this site, however so much has changed, I am in the age when I'm just getting to know who I really am..
I wish abundance and freedom, inner and outer lightness!
:) No sweat, I'm glad I could be of some help and that you are actually coming. Oh, autumn is great for apricots, pears and figs!!! I'm not familiar myself with the village Voditsa, I haven't been there, but I see you've researched it. Camping is such a wonderful experience..love it! I hope you have an excellent time! Yes, I am from Varna, I study in Sofia, but right now I'm in Primorsko (on the Southern Black see coast) for a summer job. You know, write me if you want for a possible meeting in Sofia in October. It would be nice to meet in person, it would be hard to arrange maybe, it's just an idea, but still.. I wish you all the best!
I am so sorry I haven't answered you earlier. I'm happy you might be visiting my home land, hope you find things you like and meet nice, honest people. Since it's summer fresh bulgarian fruit is available. Mainly cherries, melons, watermelon, raspberries (they're expensive), soon peaches too, divine apricots come in season later in the summer. Also imported ripe bananas at good prices. The variety is not that great, good quality exotic fruit is hard to find and a bit pointless to search for. It would be better to stick to what's in season locally. Otherwise we import from Greece and Turkey (we have very good fertile ground, but our agriculture is in a very bad condition right now, it's sad and maddening). I suggest you locate and search the bigger markets, bazaars and not the supermarkets! At some places you should see old ladies just sitting on the sidewalk and selling little quantities of their own produce from their villages. That is usually good and at a good price. The down side is that people on the markets and especially older sellers know little to no English. It would be great if you could meet someone who could translate for you, if not you should manage too, I hope. Be very careful not to get tricked with the prices. Suspect the gipsies (and the bulgarian sellers too, of course) all the time! Hold on tight to your bag and valuables, watch them, especially when in public transport! Figure out the course of the bulgarian lev compared to the currensy you are using, compare the prices on the market. If you want to buy more bulk ask for the whole-sale markets. I hope my answer is not too late and that I gave you the info you asked for. Good luck! Please right me if I can be of some help and to let me know how your stay in Bulgaria went! :)
