Day 10 Ruse
Crossing into Bulgaria was a continuation of the vast fields. What they farm here I really don't know. I saw fields of sunflowers but the rest well I don't know. It was still hot and we were coping well without aircon. When Ladiva gets hot the floor getd really hot and that on your feet for 5 odd hours is really uncomfortable.
As we drove into Bulgaria we srated to see the mountains which was lifting.
We arrived in Ruse and because there wasn't a campsite around we had to hotel it. Not that I was complaining, it was good to have a hot shower which flowed properly and air conditioning.
The town itself was unusual. I don't know if it was because it was Sunday but it was dead. In the square I could hear someone jovially talking on a tanoy but god knows what they said as it wasn't English. As I got nearer I could see about four girls with water pistols soaking each other being chased by one bloke. There were two children trowing balls into a large tub. It was actually a rather poor attended Fanta (as in the orange fizzy drink) promotion. How strange!
We all went out for dinner and took over a local restaurant where danced local dances Bulgarian style. .ok we were abit tipsy.
