Bulgarian People

During our visits to the Ski resorts and the black sea coasts and while buying our apartment next to ski slope in Pamporovo, we have got to know many Bulgarians. We have found friendly, warm natured people, many farming the land, growing vegetables and food crops. Also keeping chickens, goats, turkeys and cows to supply family and local needs. It is common for us to see sun tanned goat herds of all ages, with a staff and a dozen goats in the fields next to the winding mountain roads.

Many Bulgarians live on low wages, but about 30% are quite affluent, driving around the ski resorts on large expensive cars. Most Bulgarian, however live a simple life in the mountain areas, walking and farming. We have visited several local markets, one at Zlatograd had a good variety of shoes, leather goods and clothing. I purchased a pair of leather sandals  and a good quality short sleeve shirt. When I asked the price of the shirt I was told 15 leva ( about £6.00 at the time, when exchange rates were even better than they are now). I handed over the money, but was given 5 leva back, the two women at the stall were laughing, saying that 15 leva was too much really and that 10 was ok!! That told us something about the Bulgarian people.
