In Rumelia

Varna/Shumen Scrapbook

Today I drove with G (my host in Varna) all the way to Shumen to see the second largest mosque in the Balkan area (pictures from that will come tomorrow). We had some nice conversations on the drive over there, and I managed to snap a few pictures every once in a while.

On the transit car line extending above the highway, materials are being transported from factory to factory

Varna's ties to Istanbul seem to remain today

Varna's port has now become fully commercialized, with touristic beaches situated further away for the summertime rush
