Back In Bulgaria

Sofia, Sofia, I would like to look at you a little more but there’s work to do.

SOFIA, Bulgaria- I’m back. Not much to report. The planes left when they were supposed to and arrived in the same fashion. I’m now looking at a couple more weeks in Bulgaria.

I need to engage this place a little more before going. I have a filming segment set up with a street violinist, but I need to add on a couple more segments as well.

But at the same time I still have an entire month of articles to write. I’ve done it again. While I finished one article for a Harvard journal I didn’t produce any articles towards my quota in the first part of a month, which has again left me scampering around at the end of the month — when the stories are due. I’m probably going to end up stuck in a room for the last week … like usual.

Although I’m happy to be back. I’m happy to be riding on the subway back to my wife and kids. I’m happy because I’m going to get off at the Cultural Palace, grab a bottle of beer, and drink it on the walk home.
