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. :)
