I am officially "settled" into my little one room apartment in Samokov!
Here is my cozy bedroom/living room.
Who know my very first apartment would be in a Former-Soviet Block Building? In BULGARIA!?!?!?
Hehe, I love life... and my perfect view of people watching from my balcony!
There are about 40,000 people in Samokov... I want to say about 20,000 of those live here in the Blocks with me...
My itty bitty little kitchen! Complete with a bed and washing machine... obviously.
Bit enough to feed 6 people on one of my first nights here! A bit tight though... :)
Even though the washing machine is a hot commodity for volunteers here, it doesn't work. But that's necessarily a bad thing - because otherwise I would have washed an ENTIRE load of laundry in bleach, instead of just handwashing a couple pairs of jeans in it... Even though I can't read in Bulgarian, word to the wise: the little pictures on detergent bottles are VERY helpful.
