Tuesday 30th July

So the flight is for tomorrow morning...and I start the swift turnaround to come back the following Wednesday.  I'm packing all of the things that I need to take like a new metal outside candle lantern that I felt I couldn't live without and a packet of real Bisto.

As for the photos...I've realised that I can't put my hand on the cable to connect the camera to the laptop and it seems that it has all gone ladies' anatomy skywards in the photo department from my camping.  It was really enjoyable...I got sun burnt on the first day, rusty on the second as we huddled under the canopy, dried out on the third day and packed on the fourth.  Generally not a lot of alcohol...I obeyed all the tent rules in that the KamaKarsi was only to be used in the hours of darkness but it really foxed me the first night as the door was double bonded and I couldn't get out so had to bend the rule the first day.  After that it was fine.

As for Princess and Co.....they don't do 'camping', they do 'glamping' and with fairy lights round everything....it really was.

As I said ...photos to follow....now to do the impossible and pack....updates from BG to follow....

Wednesday 31st July

I'm home.   Very early start and slept with the light on and my phone alarm and radio alarm both set to be ready for the taxi at 4.00a.m.  What a shock to the system.

Taxi on time, check in smooth as you like, into departures by five am and down to the gate in plenty of time despite the long walk. Flight more or less on time and I was first out of the airport since I only had carry on luggage.  Over to the bus station by taxi for eleven thirty, on to the bus for Kardjali by eleven forty five and off we set at twelve noon.  Into Kardjali by three thirty, straight on to the bus for Djebel, into my student's parents shop for a catch up and off to get the five thirty bus to Dushinkovo.  Apparently since there were only four people for the bus we went by car for the same price as the bus fare...result.

Unpacked, washing done, raining with a few huge claps of thunder but it's all cleared away now and is a pleasant evening.  The garden looks to be OK and most of the plants have survived.  Tomorrow over to my student's parents to complete the passenger details ready for the return trip next wednesday.  How do I feel?  Very successful trip, achieved most of what I wanted to do and looking forward to the next.
