Happy 2011! Lots to report from our Bulgarian trip, but for now here is a quick post with a few pics from New Year's Day in Sofia, the capitol of Bulgaria. We got whacked on the back by kids bearing sticks and singing songs for the New Year. We lit candles in the Nevsky Cathedral. We wandered amongst the vendors in a nearby park and bought a few icons to remember our time in Bulgaria. But most importantly we celebrated the New Year with some of our closest friends on this planet. I think that starting the New Year with laughter, travel, and friendship is a good sign for 2011.
