Snow Good - 19 December 2010
  Winter has come early here just as with the rest of Europe. This makes it the time of year to stay in side and keep warm.

Winter in the Garden

At least that is if you don't have drive and pick the better half who was lucky enough to leave the UK before they decided to close all the airports. My normal drive of 35 minutes to pick her up from the bus station in Kardjali, was preceeded by a two hour dig to get the car to the road.

Winter in the Garden

As well as a 35 km drive that took an hour each way. Not being an expert driver in these winter conditions, and the feeling of not being able to steer making me feel out of control I thought I would take it steady. Not for your average Bulgarian. The drivers here like nothing more than a challenge, boosted by the confidence that winter tyres are compulsory they hurtle along overtaking on blind corners. They seem very interested in the contents of my boot if they are not overtaking. British drivers have nothing on these guys when it comes to tail gating! It is obviously a sign of weakness to more than 6 inches from the car in front.

So the better half is here there is nothing to do in the garden and it is too cold to much else. Enjoy the pictures of the winter setting in!
