#1: around the confluence

(visited by Penko Roussev and Vladi Aprilov)

24-Jul-2003 -- The confluence is easy to get. Its situated in the middle of a uncultivated field. We headed for that place from the seaside - city of Ravda, and what was really impressive, was the fact that it was a major road from the Republican network, but it wasn’t on the map. That makes us proud of being helpful to the Bulgarian cartography. Near the city of Harmanli, we made a turn towards the village of Balgari and headed to Bogomil village.

Suddenly the weather started to change. Heavy clouds were hanging from the sky, the sky turned dark, and thunderbolts started falling down just about 3 – 4 km from where we were. But that didn’t stop us – my friend, a famous bulgarian TV show man and me, to have a bottle of wine at the place of the confluence. The sun rays were going through the heavy clouds. Not long after we took off with the car, it poured with rain. An interesting part was, that at the place of the confluence there was a coverage from the local operator. A friend of mine called me and we had a nice chat.
