Was supposed to be some sort of birthday party for his hot niece but she didnt show because her dad and her BF didnt get along so all that Riekia had to be drunk. I was made guest of honour.

It happens. My girlfriend's from there. Rakia will knock your socks off, and yet they are able to handle it with ease. They will fill you with food, booze, and keep you up until 6 am or later if you let them. That town's quite picturesque too.


Like Ruse too. Did you make it across the river up to Bucharest?

- The small town I was born and raised in.
- Edmonton (for the last 3 years).

My parents were stable so there was never any need to move, and I won't be moving from Edmonton until my degree is done. I'm ideally looking for a stable career once I graduate, so I doubt there will be much moving around.

After I complete my undergraduate degree and before I go to Law school I want to look in to teaching English in Japan or Korea for a year. I get to save up some money, get something awesome on applications, and get some great life experience before I have to lock myself down.

Well it was beginning of December and at night so I missed out on the picturesque stuff mostly. Seemed to be a lot of partially built buildings with laundry hanging out of it.

Stayed in Ruse for a painful 3 hours as they checked the train for illegals so didnt stay long. Bucharest is awesome.

Algierian and Moroccan chicks are dynamite. But Tunis is like rivers of estrogen.

So many chicks in Tunis.

HAHHA, well put. There are some issues with infastructure. Suprisingly I feel as if their economy comes secondary to their lifestyle. They are able to get by. I've been there for the past two Decembers, luckily it hasn't been frighteningly cold. I like the views of it from across the river.

Good stuff. I agree. It's surprisingly expensive but a beautiful city, the palace is gorgeous.


Probably go back that way for the Olympics next year and then swing through northern Africa, Bulgaria, Russia, Turkey, Egypt...

It's funny to say it but you really have to be worried about the packs of Dogs in Sofia during the winters, especially when you are drunk..

Bucharest is especially bad though. Its was quite funny coming home to the hostel at night and these gangs of dogs would be down every street. Like gangs guarding their turf.

Best part was it was always a mix of dogs both small and big and the leader always seemed to be some sort of small yappy dog with his heavy muscle. Just like a real life gang.

Seemed like something out of disney movie.

It is, and it's a stonesthrow away from Union St-Gilles, a local football club I occasionally go see. They're a cult club: pre-WW II one of the giants with 11 league titles, but since the 70s stuck in the lower leagues. Their main stand does have one of the nicest façades ever though. Thank god it's a protected monument.

Never heard of them, they must suck



I kid I kid

I remember when I was in Maternelle (not sure what the English term is ), when we had to put our toys in a box and then move the box in the " toy room ", we would always sing : " Ho-hisse, Maneken Piss ! "

Also when it was nap time, I was the only one who never slept
