Dear Family & Friends
Sometime ago, our French friends came to visit us in Bulgaria...it was a delight to meet them in person because they are very gracious and easy going couple. Unfortunately, we didn't have as much time as we want, to take them around etc... as our main driver's work schedule was quiet booked that week. I could have drove them around but I'm not really a confident driver...with a very poor sense of direction too:(

Nonetheless, we managed to take them around in nearby places of interest. We went to a hotel complex that also owns a vineyard...so our guest joined the winery tour and found listening to their own voice very fascinating, in an ancient natural acoustic place inside the winery area.

After the meal, we visited the ancient Thracian tomb and temple. Thracian are said to be the oldest civilization. Would you believe they were much older than the Egyptians civilization? Unfortunately the world knows Egyptians civilization much more because the Thracians never recorded nor developed the art of writing to record things down.

A few days after they went back to their home country...we start missing them already. but we promised to keep in touch with each other. Well, who knows...when we will meet again!
