My host parents - Kiril and Svetla!!

Svetla fed me and did my laundry at the crack of dawn every week.

Kiril (check out that jumpsuit) taught me how to milk a goat and make Rakia (mmmm, Bulgarian moonshine).

The two of them laughed as my confidence in the Bulgarian language grew (and so did the number of mistakes I made), and I tried my best to be as little culturally awkward as possible.

For two months, they were my first look into Bulgarian culture, and a big part of the reason why I absolutely love this country.

I can't wait to come back to my little "Celo" and speak to them for real, and really get to know them on a whole new level. :)

I have been praying about your language learning - so glad to hear that it is getting better! Thanks for the pictures!
