Saturday 28th November

Now the beast decided to die on me today so the best laid plans of mice and all that rubbish remains in the lane awaiting removal to the tip.  The car needs a new fuel filter since the diesel in BG leaves a lot to be desired.  So instead I went out with Richard to get him a train ticket to Istanbul so that he can get his flight to Thailand.  Now this got a tad complicated.  We found the station in Kardjali and the station master and with a little bit of sign language thrown in we decided to go on to Dimitograd where the night sleeper started from...but when we arrived we were advised that the night sleeper went from Svelingrad so he has decided to take the bus instead but go a day earlier to make sure that he gets his flight.  It's not the distance.  Apparently the border crossing can take anything up to three hours and he is on quite a tight transfer time as it is to get over from the bus station to the airport.

Despite the confusion we had a very nice day out with a meal and coffee and I saw a bit more of Bulgaria.  Note to myself...must do more of this.

Well the beast is still in the garage and yours truely is driving a left hand drive manual Clio and wondering what has hit her.  First time for everything so they say but after an automatic right hand drive with cow catchers it is certainly different. The fuel has been drained out of the beast and it looks pretty mucky and had water in it so the change of fuel filter didn't seem to do much good so in for a penny in for lots of bulgarian leva.  Just get it fixed... The workers are going to get a shock when I turn up in that tomorrow morning. They were getting used of the luxury of cup holders etc and rear control of the heater and aircon.  

I have also spent the day down at Richard's caravan sorting out my laptop.  There was no access to my emails.  I could see them but not access them and apparently an update had not completed properly.  I reckon this was partly due to insufficient space on the disk so I was shifting pickies and now running a defrag just to make sure that I can still get onto the internet...This morning at the garage it was a matter of....computer losho(rubbish), colata losho but az...dobre (OK).  Look on the bright side.  The sun was shining and it was a lovely day.

Any way now, back in the hotel with defrag doing its stuff so night night....
