Picture post from Bulgaria (part I)

Now that we're home and w/ a working computer, I can take the time to post some pics of where we visited.  Very cool places.  We did not do much in Sofia but sleep there.  Maybe next time we'll be able to see some sights of Sofia.  But, we did get to go to some other really cool places.  Tourist places.  Places that most folks here would never think to go visit.  I have many pics of the kids in these places but for obvious reasons, can not share those pictures.  So, you'll have to put up w/ me in some pictures and Warren.

 Driving down to Kurdzhali, we saw many, many beautiful mountains and rolling hills.   You could not capture the beauty of it all. 

And then the beauty would come to a screeching halt.  Why?  Cows or goats crossing the roads.  

 Some of the houses and mountains of Bulgaria.  Just so peaceful looking.

Ahh, another cow.  Sorry, caught the backside of this one as we were rolling by.  

 A view from the streets near the orphanage.  That monument up there is one we visited.  It's huge.  This is not the mountain we climbed. 

A view of the orphanage soccer field in the background.  I'm sure Logan gets lots of practice in there.  

 We got to take the kids to a local park everyday.  It was a gorgeous park.  Outdoor cafe's, pony rides, playgrounds, musicians, etc.  Just so pleasant. 

Warren at the park w/ the famous dragon glider that everyone wants.  Seriously, they all want one and asked me to bring more back next time.  Umm, I got this on super clearance end of the season sale at Target for $1.25.  Won't find them again if I tried.  I'm giving it a shot though.  The other Bulgarian kids at the park would come over to play too.  Everyone wanted a turn.  It was really nice playing with so many w/ something so simple.  Well, as long as you didn't hit the neighboring babies.  

I'll have more pictures tomorrow.  going to bed.  Sister in-law stopped by for a late night visit.  It's almost 12:30 in the morning right now.  Tired.  Tons to do tomorrow and juts now realized we only have tomorrow to find Bojan a trumpet.  Lovely.  Good night and many more pics to come.
